Overview

 The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will be organizing a Regional Digital Inclusion Week for the Arab States during the period 23-28 September 2018.

 

The 2018 ITU-UNESCO Regional Digital Inclusion Week for Arab States will build on the success of the earlier ITU-UNESCO Regional Information Communication Technology (ICT) Accessibility Week for Arab States organized by ITU and UNESCO from 24-28 September 2017. ​

You can find Information on last year’s ICT Accessibility Week here​​

 

How to get involved

The Regional Digital Inclusion Week is an opportunity to raise awareness, strengthen collaboration amongst stakeholders and advance this shared commitment across the Arab region. ITU and UNESCO are therefore inviting all stakeholders across the Arab region to organize at least one activity during this week, so as to shed light on their key activities in this domain, whether at the national or regional level. Stakeholders are free to design the nature, scope and location of activities and associate them to the Week, as long they reflect the theme of Digital Inclusion in the Arab region. The online form on the event website can be used to make your submissions, which should be received before 31 July, 2018.

We invite you to follow us on social media under the hashtag #Digitalinclusionweek
