Greening the Blue

While working with our members to leve​rage digital technologies to monitor, mitigate and adapt to climate change, ITU is also addressing climate change from within. This is in line with UN-wide commitments to ‘walk the talk’ and systematically integrate sustainability across its operations.

This Summit can help ensure that Artificial Intelligence charts the course that benefits humanity and bolsters our shared values. The United Nations stands ready to be a universal platform for discussion together let us make sure we use AI to enhance human dignity and serve the global goods.

António Guterres

Secretary-General, United Nations

AI for Good provides an outstanding mix of world class presentations and discussion topics from an eminent line-up of global researchers and scientists. It is an important must-attend event for any organization or individual interested in demonstrating the possibilities of AI for societal benefit

Monash Data Futures Institute


It’s in our collective interest that we can shape AI faster than it is shaping us. This summit, as the UN’s primary platform for AI, will bring to the table leading voices representing a diversity of interests to ensure that AI can be a powerful catalyst for progress in our race to rescue the SDGs.

Doreen Bogdan-Martin

Secretary-General, ITU

It is wonderful to be with everybody in virtual space. […]. These are some of the most enjoyable and inspiring meetings that I have ever been to.
