What are digital currencies and how do they work? What is the value of this ‘digital money’ and their economic impact? How secure and private are these transactions, and what is the role of cryptography in them? Are fluctuations in Bitcoin value important? What are the risks of an anonymous and decentralised currency system? How do regulators around the world react to crypto currencies? What is next?

What is the state of e-participation in Geneva International? Is the use of social media increasing inclusiveness and engagement?  Does remote participation help developing countries and small island states influence international decisions? What impact does citizen engagement and open data have on the work of international organisations?

 To learn more about these issues,  join us for E-participation Day  on 19 June 2013 in Geneva where you will have the opportunity to listen to experts from The Global Fund, ICANN, IGF, ITU, Open Data Research Network, UNDP, WHO and others, including Diplo Foundation.

You are invited to either attend in person or participate remotely by watching the  broadcast and interacting through the live blog. The full programme is available here. Please note that registration is required.

The event is organized in cooperation with the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations, the Canton of Geneva (Geneva International), Geneva Centre for Security Policy and Media Vision.
