What can you expect from the Digital Day 2018?

Today marks the starting point for the second Digital Day in October 2018. The next months will be dedicated to planning and organizing this unique event. What is already clear today is that the Digital Day will be under the patronage of Federal President Alain Berset and Federal Councilor Johann Schneider-Ammann. Zurich, Geneva and Lugano main stations will again serve as hubs and focal points for the Digital Day. digitalswitzerland expects even more organizations and institutions as partners for the Digital Day 2018. Various events and talks will take place throughout Switzerland and transform the country into a digital future lab. Let’s start talking and thinking about a digital tomorrow. Because the change is already happening today and we should recognize the opportunity and make the best out of it.

That was the Digital Day 2017

Switzerland’s first Digital Day took place on 21 November 2017. Together with more than 40 partner companies and institutions under the patronage of Swiss President Doris Leuthard and Federal Councilor Johann Schneider-Ammann, digitalswitzerland launched the dialog with the Swiss public on the highly relevant topic of digitization. What does the digital revolution mean in concrete terms for every one of us: for our work, mobility, education, communication and everyday lives?

Colorful and diverse: what a digital future might look like

More than 200’000 people experienced the Digital Day 2017 in person, and as many again engaged with it digitally. Over 100 events took place in the train stations of Zurich, Chur, Geneva and Lugano, as well as in many other locations across Switzerland. From a digital classroom to a ballet with drones, the Digital Day was colorful and showed us what a digital future could look like.

However, with change there also comes insecurity. Is digitization really as bright as promised? Addressing fears and insecurity was another goal of the Digital Day – because there are always two sides of the same coin. For digitalswitzerland the cup is half full and its mission is to unfold the country’s digital potential and make Switzerland a leading digital innovation hub. Worldwide!
