Volunteers celebrating at Geneva summit

“Thanks to everyone who has contributed to organizing this- it was such a valuable time to spend with a very interesting group of people. I’ve learnt a lot that I will be taking back with me!” – GDDS attendee

eSHIFT co-hosted the three-day Global Digital Development Summit in Geneva, Switzerland from October 23-30, 2019.

Over 100 participants from iNGOs, international agencies, governments, and the private sector came together to discuss real life case studies, explore emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, and gain an understanding of the policy landscape across countries and donors. The conference was a tremendous success and we plan on organizing another summit in 2020.
