Over the past decade, the world has seen significant developments in reaching the 2030 Agenda and ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education (SDG4) and achieving gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls (SDG5). The world has seen a major role that a responsible use of human-centric and human rights-based information and communication technologies (ICT), including artificial intelligence, play in this endeavour.
Ahead of the upcoming 2023 SDG Summit that will be convened in September 2023 during the United Nations General Assembly in New York in order to follow-up and review the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, this WSIS Forum event will zoom in on the use of information and communication technologies, including artificial intelligence to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 5.
How can we ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all with the support of the ICT? How to strengthen digital literacy and skills for women and girls? How can AI solutions support the no-cost access, re-use, re-purpose, adaptation and redistribution of educational open educational resources?
The event will serve as a platform to share concrete examples of the use of Open Educational Resources to empower women in girls, increase access to quality education and build partnerships to boost AI for sustainable development.
