Launching a #DigitalDecade to Strengthen Public Institutions
On September 18 on the margins of the UN General Assembly, New America will convene a landmark event for the emerging field of digital public goods. Heads of state and government, multilateral organizations, civil society leaders, technologists, and some of the world’s largest funders will come together with the goal of launching a decade of work to develop open digital platforms for the public sector. The event will examine models, mechanisms, and architecture necessary to advance the use of digital public goods to build more effective institutions.
The event will open with remarks from New America CEO Anne-Marie Slaughter and heads of government followed by a plenary session with leading technologists, philanthropists, and digital government practitioners. The session will conclude with a digital roundtable during which participants will negotiate a joint declaration launching a Decade of Digital Public Goods for Effective Institutions.
