United Nations World Data Forum 2021

The SSS is pleased that the UNO World Data Forum 2021 will take place in Bern in Switzerland from 3d to 6th of October 2021. The current pandemic has forced the Swiss Confederation and the UN to postpone this forum from 2020 to 2021. However, the UN will hold a reduced virtual forum from 19 to 21 October 2020.

UNDataForum story7DecThe "Road to Bern" programme is extended until the opening of the Forum.
Within the framework of this programme, the SSS will organise various activities in 2021.
