Launch of the Help Desk for inclusive governance

24 September 2020


Event description

[Update] Check out the Help Desk for Inclusive Online Meetings


Launching on Thursday, 24th September | Online

COVID-19 has forced the world to shift to a digital way of working and meeting, creating ‘the new normal’, which is likely here to stay. While some have managed to adapt easily, others need a helping hand to transition to virtual meetings and conferences, and to select the right approach and tools. 

One of the best ways of assisting those who need help is by providing real-time assistance based on the specific needs and roles of organisations or countries. This is the main role of the new ConfTech Help Desk which will be launched officially at the end of September.

14 new projects in September and October
