The Gala Dinner is the culmination of the day’s events.

The
theme
“Connecting the World”
celebrates ITU’s mission to support sustainable development,
 and to promote education through globalized broadband access
.

During the Gala Dinner, the inaugural
 

ICTs in Sustainable Development Award
 

were presented toglobal leaders who promote the use of ICTs towards achieving
the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Attendees included Heads of State, past and present Leaders of the United Nations,
UN Permanent Representatives, and distinguished business executives.

Hosting  Organization:

 International Telecommunication Union (ITU)

Co-Hosting Organization:

Global Sustainability Foundation ( GSF)



“This year, 2015, marks the 150th anniversary of the International Telecommunication Union. Established in 1865, ITU has reaffirmed its reputation worldwide as one of the most resilient and relevant organizations and continues its work as the specialized agency of the United Nations, and its oldest member, dealing with state of- the-art telecommunications and information and communication technologies.

The remarkable history of ITU exemplifies its stellar role in connecting the world to the most advanced and innovative means of communication, from the days of the telegraph to the Internet and mobile broadband, which now allows us to be in touch anytime, anywhere with friends, family, colleagues and even things.

As we celebrate our 150th anniversary, we look back with pride at our accomplishments. And we look forward to the future as we respond to the rapid changes
 in the global ICT environment.


The digital revolution has transformed the world. The global economy is now driven by ICTs – technologies which pervade every aspect of our lives. ICTs are also the catalysts for shaping the post-2015 development agenda and achieving our goals for sustainable development. The next steps will be further evolution with far greater efficiencies and affordability allowing more people to access the benefits of ICTs.

I wish you a very productive 150th anniversary in 2015.”
