Digital innovation as catalyst for social change

The e-Governance Conference, the most influential e-governance event in the international arena, brings together strategists, decision-makers, policy implementers, and donors to chart a future course for digital governance. This year, the conference will explore how digital innovation can serve as a catalyst for social change and improve the welfare of societies and citizens. The programme will examine drivers for viable social change, from capacity building to a culture of cybersecurity.

Panel discussion

The collaborative road to innovation

How can cooperation between governments, the private sector, civil society, and academia foster innovation in the public sector?

This session, hosted by the African Union – European Union Digital for Development (D4D) Hub, will gather African policymakers and digital stakeholders to discuss the opportunities and challenges of working together in developing and implementing innovative e-governance policies for sustainable and inclusive change.

Panellists will build on their practical experiences in setting up collaborative partnerships to draw lessons and recommendations for e-governance practitioners from around the world.

The panel discussion will take place on 30 May at 16:00 (EET). More information will follow shortly.


Learning from each other's experiences

For the second year in a row, the e-Governance Conference will serve as an opportunity for the AU-EU D4D Hub to exchange with government representatives from different African countries, who will be invited to the event to share their own experiences, learn from other African and European countries’ digital transformation journeys, and to discuss new and ongoing collaborations.


Reporting trip for African journalists

The AU-EU D4D Hub is sponsoring a reporting trip for three African journalists to attend the e-Governance Conference in person. The purpose of this activity is to promote a broader public debate on e-governance across the African continent and to ensure that the outcomes of the event permeate to other sectors of society.

The call for applications is now closed. The selected journalists will be announced shortly.
