GIGA: An Initiative to Connect Every School to the Internet
UNICEF and ITU have launched “GIGA”, a new initiative to connect every school to the internet, and every young person to information, opportunity and choice. GIGA is anchored in the UN Secretary-General’s High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation’s findings 1A and 1B which state, respectively, that by “2030 every adult should have affordable access to digital networks” and calls for “a broad, multi-stakeholder alliance, involving the UN, create a platform for sharing digital public goods.”
