The Boston Global Forum and the Global Internet Governance, Digital Empowerment, and Security Alliance are collaborating to make significant contributions to the Global Governance of AI during the upcoming C20 Summit in India. With a shared vision of advancing digital empowerment, internet governance, and security, BGF and GLIDES will present a special report as part of the C20 Summit’s “Technology, Security, and Transparency” working group. This initiative aligns with BGF’s mission of promoting AIWS – “the Age of Global Enlightenment” – and reflects the C20 Summit’s theme of “You are the Light.”

The C20 Summit is an integral part of the G20 groupings and serves as an engagement platform for civil society organizations to voice their concerns and aspirations to G20 leaders. With over 800 representatives from civil society organizations worldwide, the C20 Summit plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between citizens and governments. Taking place in Jaipur, Rajasthan, 29-31 July 2023, the summit holds even more significance as India assumes the presidency of the G20 this year.

Boston Global Forum, known for its commitment and initiatives to fostering Global Enlightenment, will bring its expertise and insights to support the spirit of the C20 Summit’s theme, “You are the Light.” BGF’s collaboration with GLIDES through the C20 Summit’s “Technology, Security, and Transparency” working group will culminate in the announcement of a special report on Global Governance of AI. This report will provide valuable recommendations and strategies for governing the rapidly advancing field of artificial intelligence, addressing key aspects such as ethics, transparency, regulations, and accountability.
