GLOBAL ALLIANCE FOR DIGITAL GOVERNANCE

The Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG) was established through a collaboration of the Boston Global Forum and World Leadership Alliance-Club de Madrid at the Policy Lab on September 7-9, 2021.

GADG will:

  • Coordinate resources: governments, international organizations, corporations, think tanks, civil society, and influencers for AI and a digital sphere for good, to make these resources more effective, to synthesize and maximize their impact, and to create more implementation-oriented conferences.
  • Protect fundamental values and standards proposed in Social Contract for the AI Age, in AI International Accord and in the book Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment.

The Global Law and Accord on AI and Digital is the theoretical framework that guides all activities and discussions of the Global Alliance for Digital Governance at Boston Global Forum.
