ENABLING DIALOGUE AND LEARNING

Swiss Digital Days 2022 offered the Swiss population the opportunity for exchange, discussion, and access to more than 350 events on the topic of digitalisation. During seven weeks, digitalswitzerland in collaboration with its partners successfully organised a series of local events in seven regions of Switzerland. The Swiss population joined us in our bubbles, or attended one of the online events, experienced the digital future and also created thousands of digital artworks about Switzerland and digitization with the help of advanced artificial intelligence
