Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and Society

How can we build a sustainable, inclusive and trustworthy digital future?

Every time a person or object connects to the digital world, they contribute to the explosive growth of a new shared global commons. The unprecedented opportunities and benefits from new infrastructure, applications and data are, however, paired with new problems to solve and dilemmas to manage.

Society has often struggled to reach consensus on how to manage our global commons. Existing institutions and norms may need to be redesigned to respond effectively to the fast pace of digital change and its unfamiliar, distributed nature. The decisions made today will shape the world for future generations. Collaboration and innovation are required to shape society’s collective destiny.

The System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and Society is a global platform for cooperation to build a digital economy that is sustainable, inclusive and trustworthy.
