Free Spirits outing ITU Geneva
About this event :
Whether chatting by phone, mobile or online; catching a flight or simply watching television, information and communication technologies (ICT) are the foundations of everything we do in the modern world.
The fascinating story of ICT might not have been fully achieved without the ITU, the International Telecommunication Union, founded in 1865 and incorporated subsequently into the United Nations as its specialised ICT agency whose aim is to establish principles for telegraphy across borders to protect and support everyone’s fundamental right to communicate.
During the visit, hear amazing stories about the history of telecommunications from messaging in prehistory to the complex connected world in which we now live. Discover how information flows through the internet….where it comes from and goes to….what are the geographic, social/ economic barriers.
