Global Alliance for Digital Governance official launched and discussed at the Club de Madrid-BGF Policy Lab

At the Policy Lab on “Fundamental Rights in AI & Digital Societies: Towards an International Accord”, speakers agreed that the global community cannot wait for governments or international organizations to act. The Global Alliance for Digital Governance will take action to connect think tanks, influencers, experts, and citizens to contribute to building International Laws, International Accord on AI and Digital, while simultaneously working with governments and international organizations towards this goal.

Boston Global Forum (BGF), Club de Madrid and AI World Society (AIWS) propose an initiative: establishing a Global Alliance for Digital Governance (GADG). This is a part of Social Contract for the AI Age, Framework for AI International Accord, BGF Conference of July 1st, 2020, and the book “Remaking the World – Toward an Age of Global Enlightenment”.

  • Governments
  • Organizations and Institutions
  • Companies
  • Influencers and Creators
  • Global Enlightenment Community
  • Thinkers, Scientists and Tech Innovators
