[digital.global] Launch
Kick-off event for the strategic realignment of BMZ’s digital policy

In its national digital strategy, the German government has decided to present a strategy for an international digital policy for the first time.

For Germany and the EU, the implementation of a socio-ecological-feminist transformation of global economic systems toward resilient structures, which is essential in the global competition of systems in the face of the turning point of time, can only succeed if we continue to support our partners in the global South in sustainably transforming themselves digitally in the fight against hunger/poverty, pandemics, climate change and discrimination against women.

Minister Svenja Schulze is therefore inviting a broad network of international partners from the digital ecosystem and ICT sector to the kick-off event for the strategic realignment of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (BMZ) digital policy.

On site, around 240 selected representatives from the digital scene, ICT sector, science, civil society, and politics will attend the event as an audience. Virtually, a very large circle of all relevant BMZ networks (Make IT Alliance, GIZ Business Forum, digilab, Strategic Partnership Technology Africa SPTA, participants of the transformation forums incl. DOs, NGOs, departments, etc.) is invited.

After the actual event and the launch of the network, participants will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with BMZ, keynote speakers and other participants about BMZ’s digital realignment during four Open Spaces on leadership priorities (Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences, poverty and hunger, Just Transition and feminist development policy).
