The planet is facing the worst economic crisis of the last century. The 20 most important economies in the world are called to work together to reignite growth and foster a renewed prosperity.
The digital revolution represents a fundamental tool to achieve prosperity and better quality of life. For too long, however, digitalization has also been a driver of precariousness and inequality. The international community, spurred by the G20, needs to make digitalization an opportunity for all.
This means reducing the digital divide, promoting infrastructural developments able to guarantee universal internet access and achieving adequate and widespread digital literacy.
It also means exploiting the full potential of the technological revolution to concretely improve the living conditions of citizens all over the world, in every aspect of their lives.
This implies: making health services more effective; facilitate data sharing to strengthen global pandemic preparedness and response; enhancing smart, agile and flexible working models, which may contribute to better redistribute unpaid care work between genders and promote a better work-life balance for both men and women; improve the efficiency of energy distribution networks and grids and enhance the reach of educational activities.
