Boston Global Forum 10th Anniversary Conference

November 22, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Manifesto “Actions to Create the Age of Global Enlightenment”

Concept notes:

The United Nations is championing a Global Digital Compact, and Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, under the leadership of the Technology Envoy of Secretary General of United Nations and his office. These will be important areas of discussion at the United Nations Summit of the Future in 2024.

The Boston Global Forum’s “The United Nations Centennial Initiative” and its publication “Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment” (AIWS, AI International Accord, the Social Contract for the AI Age) capture the need of consolidate actions urgently. BGF established Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) to coordinate global resources for this mission: create the Global Enlightenment Age.

It will support Global Digital Compact, Roadmap for Digital Cooperation and Summit of the Future of United Nations through the United Nations Centennial Initiative and GADG, creating actions for a peaceful, secure and prosperous world.

At this BGF conference, distinguished leaders and thinkers will honor United Nations Secretary-General’s Envoy on Technology Amandeep Gill with the World Leader in AIWS Award. We will hear the Distinguished Global Enlightenment Speech by Ambassador Amandeep Gill and then proceed to a discussion on the Manifesto “AIWS Actions to create the Age of Global Enlightenment”
