In recognition of ITU as the UN agency for telecommunications and information and communication technologies, the World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis, November 2005, called upon the United Nations to declare 17 May as World Information Society Day. 17 May, long recognized as World Telecommunication Day, marks the establishment of ITU in 1865. Endorsed by the UN General Assembly, World Information Society Day focuses global attention annually on reaching the enormous benefits of the digital revolution in information and communication technologies to all the world’s inhabitants. The ITU Plenipotentiary Conference in November 2006 endorsed the celebration of 17 May as World Telecommunication and Information Society Day. For more details, click here.
