Theme: The information society 2015 - corporate responsibility and digital access for sustainable development

The World Summit on the Information Society, WSIS, established a number of goals for the year 2015. Providing the world’s peoples with access - to connect the world’s people in even the remotest regions, its schools, governments, research centres, libraries, hospitals and health centres, cultural centres, museums, post offices and archives - was the primary goal. One of the most important goals set by the WSIS calls for a world where, “more than half the world's inhabitants have access to ICTs within their reach,” by 2015. The WSIS also called for, “ensuring that all of the world's population have access to television and radio services”.
