Digital Nations Summit 2020 and FWD50

Digital Government 10-23-2020

Want to know how digital government can improve citizens’ lives? Canada is the virtual place to be in November 2020!

Digital government is more important than ever – to provide secure, reliable and easy to use services to citizens when and where they need them, and Canada, as a leader in the digital government movement, is hosting two major international events in November: the Digital Nations Summit (November 2-3) and FWD50 (November 3-9).

What are the Digital Nations?

The Digital Nations is a collaborative forum of the world’s leading digital governments that aims to use technology to improve citizens' lives. Countries share world-class digital practices, collaborate to solve common problems, identify improvements to digital services, and support and champion growing digital economies. Learn more about the summit.

What is FWD50?

FWD50 is a global digital government gathering held annually in Ottawa, Canada. Each year, technologists, executives, and industry come together for a week of content and discussion, focused on steering progress and innovation towards our better selves.

Now in its fourth year, the event will welcome thousands of attendees from across the world. Created with NGOs, governments, and civic tech organizations, this year’s event will be entirely virtual. Spread over a week, it will include new ways to get involved as attendees, speakers, and sponsors, with significant outreach to regional government public servants through a regional pass program.

Some of the topics that will be covered:

  • COVID-19 response
  • Resilient democracy
  • Civic tech
  • Leadership
  • Global co-operation
  • Private/public co-operation
  • Innovation
  • Privacy and data
  • Digital health
  • Design thinking
  • Metrics, data and analytics

You can see the full schedule online, buy tickets, or—if you work in regional government—claim free passes through our regional access pass program. Bulk discounts for government departments are also available.
