​Accelerating digital transformation in challenging times: ITU members and other stakeholders have stepped up with essential services, saving lives and sustaining economies. Governments and the private sector alike have demonstrated remarkable resilience. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency of accelerating digital transformation.

This means advancing the goals and targets of ITU’s Connect 2030 Agenda and leaving no one behind. In line with the WTISD-21 call to action and the advocacy kit​ we invite you to organize activities in your country to mark WTISD-2021. These events will raise awareness of the importance of getting all stakeholders around the world involved in " Accelerating digital transformation in challenging times" and to showcase relevant initiatives for digital transformation to improve the lives of people and communities around the world.
