We focus on how to enhance transparency and trust and mitigate disinformation in cases where information is easy to originate and amplify quickly and retractions serve little value from a socioeconomic standpoint.

Social media has democratized communication, increased our ability to access a global audience and reduced the cost of access to information. Unfortunately, it has also increased our vulnerability to impulse buying, to advertisements that make non-transparent claims, to the spread of disinformation or accurate information but contextualized in a manner intended to excite irrational responses or amplify pre-existing subliminal biases.

The increased vulnerability comes at a grave cost in terms of loss of trust in public institutions, net neutrality and amplification of rumours leading to loss of life or property. A study by Deloitte shows that a 10% increase in share of trusting people within a country will raise annual per capita real GDP growth by about 0.5%. This is a substantial gain over the global average of 2.2% during 2015-2019.

Message from the Chair, C20 India 2023

Our Inspiration

Amma sees the whole world as a flower. Each petal represents a nation. If one petal is infested with pests, it will affect the other petals as well. The beauty of the whole flower suffers. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protect and nurture this flower. All living beings in creation are interdependent. The rhythm of Nature depends upon humanity. It’s necessary to maintain the rhythm of the mind and body for the sake of our health and lifespan, for the sake of humankind and Nature.
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ❤️
