Infopoverty Programme - ICTs for Development
Could the Digital Society
OCCAM organised the first session of the Conference during the 2020 edition of the World Economic Forum in Davos, focusing on the implementation of SDG 1: end poverty in all its forms everywhere.
It was underlined how only 2% of the total world population holds the vast majority of the global wealth, and how endemic inequalities lead to 3/4 of the planet to live in absolute poverty.
After few weeks, the Coronavirus begins its insane expansion, inducing salvific practices until then used only by “digital natives”, always fully interconnected. The perception is that of a new reality where obsolete structures and governance, socio-economic imbalances and self-referential élites fade, prefiguring an imminent kind of global reset of the current paradigm.
