Launch: Tech Meets informal get-togethers (Geneva)

08 October 2020


Event description

Launching on Thursday, 8th October | Geneva

The number of diplomats assigned to cover digital policy issues is increasing. In International Geneva, where more than half of the digital policy discussions take place, a vibrant network of tech diplomats is emerging quickly.

Starting in October 2020, we will launch a series of informal get-togethers for tech diplomats. The Tech Meets will be held at different locations (including Jardin Botanique and the Attique of the World Meteorological Organization), and will serve as networking events.
