360/OPEN SUMMIT: THE WORLD IN MOTION - REMARKS FROM DANISH TECH AMBASSADOR ANNE MARIE LARSEN - Digital technology holds great potential for strengthening democracy and citizens’ engagement. New forms of mass movements and digital mobilization are invigorating democratic values at global scale. At the same time, digital technology also weakens core aspects of democracy and civic freedoms. States, multilateral organizations, and companies have a joint responsibility for using and regulating technology to the benefit of democracy and public interest. During this session, Denmark’s Tech Ambassador Anne Marie Engtoft Larsen will present the latest Tech for Democracy initiative launched by the Danish government, as well as Denmark’s broader efforts to work with allied institutions and civil society to support democracy and civic freedoms in the digital age.
