At the international, European, and national levels, standardisation represents an example of a consolidated and efficient multistakeholder forum as it gathers, through its organisations, all the components of our communities: businesses, public authorities and utilities, academia, research centres, professionals, and civil society. These components meet to discuss and to find the best technical, social, and economic solutions to problems occurring in our daily life.
In this context, the World Standards Cooperation, which is a a high-level collaboration between the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), is hosting the 2021 International Standards Summit for People, Planet and Prosperity.
Diplo’s Executive Director Dr Jovan Kurbalija will be speaking at SESSION II: Transforming our world: International standardization for people, planet, and prosperity, on Thursday, 28th October 2021, 13:20–14:00 CEST. The session will focus on on how international standardisation is contributing to achieving the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and what will be its role in tackling future challenges in areas regarding people, planet, and prosperity.
