Do we need SDGs for the Internet?

On this occasion, the idea of SDGs for the Internet was discussed with relevant personalities such as United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, ITU Secretary-General elect Doreen Bogdan-Martin, IGF Leadership Panel Chair Vint Cerf, and Austrian Minister for the EU and the Constitution Karoline Edtstadler, among others.

Before heading to the IGF, Lise Fuhr gave an interview on whether we need SDGs for the Internet, available below.

#THINKDIGITAL INTERVIEW WITH RACHEL SAMREN, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, CHIEF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS AND TRUST OFFICER AT TELIA


 
This #ThinkDigital interview shows the role that the telco sector plays in fighting climate change and the energy crisis: by taking responsibility for its own footprint but also enabling other industries to reduce emissions and to become smarter about energy usage.

In the context of the energy crisis, the latter becomes critical for many European industries not only to fight climate change, but also to save costs.

Rachel added that “there are so many challenges in the world around us. So I think the real strength is to ensure that we as a sector, as a community, keep on allowing everyone to participate”.

“What will Europe look like in 10 years?”
Answer by @ThierryBreton :
“It will be stronger & more resilient!
We already put 35 legislative initiatives on the table for that — half of them already adopted”
Not too bad for a “dreamer”
