WSIS +10 review meeting: "Towards Knowledge Societies for Peace and Sustainable Development"

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) set a common vision of societies in which information and knowledge play critical roles in enabling the development of countries, societies and individuals, including those marginalized and the most vulnerable. In 2015, the WSIS outcomes implementation will be reviewed by UN General Assembly in pursuance of the Resolution 60/252 and the paragraph 111 of the Tunis Agenda for the Information Society.

UNESCO, in cooperation with ITU, UNCTAD and UNDP, is organizing the first WSIS +10 review meeting entitled "Towards Knowledge Societies for Peace and Sustainable Development". This meeting will assess the progress made, look at ongoing and future ICT trends and build a vision for new information/knowledge societies in the framework of the overall WSIS review process towards 2015.

It is intended to bring together 600-800 physical and 1500 remote participants, including Ministers and high-level governmental officials, heads of IGOs, CEOs of the private sector and the civil society representatives.
