    Ministerial Round Table “Towards Knowledge Societies”

    (9-10 October 2003, 9.30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Room X)


  • See Ministerial Communiqué

    The emergence of the information society and the opportunities that both traditional and new information and communication technology (ICT) offer for human progress are the main points of UNESCO's contribution to the World Summit on the Information Society, which is to be held in Geneva, December 2003 and Tunis, in November 2005.

    The Ministerial Round Table Meeting provides a framework for international exchange on the principles of universal access to information, equitable access to education, cultural and linguistic diversity and freedom of expression, as well as on the application of ICT in education, sciences, culture and communication. It will allow ministers in charge of ICT and information society related issues in UNESCO Member States to debate and share their respective views and experiences.

    The Ministerial Declaration to be adopted by the participants in the Round Table Meeting is expected to outline a set of basic principles and guidelines for the development of equitable knowledge societies and will be considered as an important contribution to the World Summit on the Information Society.
