At a time when access to digital technologies has never mattered more, our next WTDC represents an unmissable opportunity to unleash the power of digital partnership to deliver on our 2030 sustainable development pledges. Partner2Connect mobilizes leaders from government, the global tech sector and beyond to bring digital inclusion to even the hardest-to-connect communities, so that when it comes to digital opportunities, no-one is left behind.
