‘Digital technology has shrunk the planet, galvanized voices for social change and transformed the way we live forever. By enabling access to communications and information globally, technology has opened new doors toward advancements around the world. At the same time, in the context of the pandemic that affects us all today, the systemic weaknesses of our social and economic order have been dramatically exposed, pushing hundreds of millions of individuals and families into poverty. Now more than ever, synergies to pursue and adapt to a sustainable development that leaves no one behind must be explored and put in practice.’
In February 2021, the United Nations Commission for Social Development will focus on “A Socially just transition towards sustainable development: the role of digital technologies on social development and well-being of all”, a crucial and relevant theme in the context of the global pandemic.
We, the NGO Committee for Social Development, are pleased to share with you our Civil Society Declaration, the first of its kind to be open to public endorsements because of the specially trying times we are going through as a global human community.
