A community working together year-long

Multi-disciplinary talks promoted as DEC initiatives feed into a comprehensive think-tank via Wise Media's multi-channel media platform created to monitor the ongoing digital revolution.

Digital transformation for peace, progress and sustainable development
What must be addressed? What can be done, how, and involving whom?

If the 21st century will be an era of triumph or tragedy much depends on our ability to face and tackle global challenges such as climate change and other natural or man-made hazards, while creating a sustainable and inclusive economy in the era of Artificial Intelligence. DEC addresses these topics through knowledge sharing among international experts on Digital Transformation.

Call to action in the era of AI

From Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to Augmented Reality and Blockchain; from the science of materials and Industry 4.0 to 3D Printing and Robotics: numerous disruptive innovations are reshaping the technology landscape, business environment and the everyday world we live in.
As AI is set to transform the outlook of our economies, Sustainability Summit Working Groups initiated the debate at the crossroads of science, technology, economy, sociology and psychology that is now at the heart of DEC.

International, open and cross-sector initiatives see DEC community members engage year-long with pioneering technology experts, luminaries from academia, visionary leaders, policy makers, government representatives, NGO representatives, economists, sociologists, futurists.
