COVID-19: The Great  Digital Acceleration

COVID-19: The Great Digital Acceleration

As part of an OECD Forum series, the virtual event COVID-19: The Great Digital Acceleration took place on Tuesday, 15 December.

This event has now ended and registration is closed – but don't worry, you can still watch the replay!

The session was an opportunity to reflect on the fact that digital tools have played a central role in mitigating some of the impacts of the COVID pandemic. It is shining a light on both the benefits and risks associated with digital technologies. It has accelerated digitally-driven transformations and fastened the migration of many parts of our lives to the digital world. This holds significant implications for our relationship to digital technologies both during the pandemic and for the recovery, as we strive to develop the “digital future we want”.
