GEP Members of Parliament from around the world assembled on December 9-10 in person and online to hold the 12th annual session of Parliament on the theme "Maintaining Our Humanity in the Digitalized Future."
MPs and guest speakers from 25 countries around the world discussed how to welcome the advances that digitalization brings to human civilization, while at the same time ensuring that its new culture does not mean we lose touch with what it means to be a human being.
Participants hailed from Austria, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, Nigeria, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Philippines, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.
The event was open to the public for registration to become a Member of Parliament, and anyone was able to ask questions and participate in debates.
At the Question Hour, participants had the opportunity to ask GEP Ministers a question about digitalization. Many were concerned about the long-term effects of various technologies and tools that have not been studied well for their impacts on human wellbeing and environmental integrity before being deployed.
Guest speakers, GEP Ministers and GEP Members addressed the positive and negative aspects of digitalization in each sector, from Education to Agriculture to Finance.
The event was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Governor of West Bengal, His Excellency Dr. C.V. Ananda Bose.
