The e-Governance Academy, Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ESTDEV invite you to the 9th e-Governance Conference, the world-leading event on this subject.
At the conference, you will meet fellow public sector strategists, decision-makers, policy implementers, and donors to chart a future course for digital transformation.
This year, we focus on drivers for viable social change. From capacity-building, service design and AI, to fostering a culture of cybersecurity.
For example, we’ll share real-life transformational stories from Estonia, Gambia, Finland, Montenegro, Costa Rica, and Uganda. And everyone can take inspiration from Ukraine, harvesting digital dividends despite the war.
For two decades, eGA has inspired governments to make their activities more digital, transparent, and inclusive. The e-Governance Conference is one way of sharing our passion with you.
We invite you to participate online and on-site in Tallinn!
Digital governance holds huge potential to improve citizens’ lives. However, only seven percent of government leaders around the world say their organizations have met their digital transformation goals. Digital innovation is about removing outdated processes and building new ones. For this reason, digital transformation is also tightly linked to human resources and needs a capacity-building mindset.
Join us to discuss:
Why do we need to talk about mindset changes and good Human Resources when we want to build capacity on individual and government levels?
How can we use learning effectively to empower people?
Given the unprecedented speed of digital developments, they have created a new type of vulnerability that can affect anyone due to war, national catastrophe, or temporary disability. Digital vulnerability is the lack of awareness of digital issues, lack of access to technological benefits, or when digital illiteracy hinders engagement in political decision-making and access to services.
Join us to explore:
What are the main obstacles to designing processes, services, and policies to address digital vulnerability?
What solutions could be used to identify the most vulnerable citizens and design processes, services, and policies to engage and empower them?
Global progress in technology stacks means the availability of new methods and solutions on a continual basis. These tools enable a leap to new levels of digital government. Yet these new tools also offer new ways of approaching and evaluating data and its role in the digital ecosystem, meaning existing policies and practices in regard to data must be reviewed and re-evaluated.
Together we’ll consider:
How should data be governed in the public sector, and what impact does it have on society?
How automation and machine learning changes data governance processes, and how may citizens benefit?
For a modern digital society, cybersecurity is more than just a technological and organisational challenge. A level of awareness and preparedness for crises is required for all of society, as well as skills to manage cyber risks in order to preserve our way of life and continue to benefit from digitalisation.
How can governments improve cybersecurity behaviour across society by better considering humans vis-à-vis technology?
What are the pressing challenges and priorities for strengthening a country’s cyber resilience, and how can we support citizens in crises or emergencies?
Which mechanisms can help leverage existing technical cooperation for enhanced political cooperation?
Registration is mandatory for all participants.
