The Global Forum/ Shaping the Future Event will take place on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th October 2022 in Muscat, Oman
After two years of suspension due to the covid pandemic, the Global Forum/ Shaping the Future Event is back to a face-to-face modality, and it foresees several speakers on the topic of digital solutions for a smarter, more sustainable and resilient world.
Since 1992, the Global Forum gathers together experts of different fields in order to discuss the main technologic, economic, social, societal, political and ethical issues and challenges that affect the digital society.
ALDA believes that digitalisation comes with challenges and opportunities and that it needs to be guided by a long term strategy, not only digital but also cultural. This strategy is the key to exploit the potential that digitalisation offers, while ensuring data protection and digital security.
