Spreading awareness of the importance of communication in our lives
Vinod Chandrashekhar Dixit5/16/2019 11:11:34 PM
World Telecommunication and information society Day will be celebrated on 17 May. This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day, which has been celebrated annually since 1969. It is said that "Communication is the real work of leadership and any sufficiently advanced technology is equivalent to the magic." In November 2005, the World's governments took a meeting on Information Society called upon the UN General Assembly to declare 17 May as World Information Society Day. This day was declared to focus on the importance of ICT and the wide range of issues related to the Information Society. World Telecommunication and Information Society Day is even celebrated by organisations like UNESCO, with a different theme every year. Prior to World Information Society Day, people and organizations such as ITU celebrated World Telecommunication Day, which was first held in 1969, on May 17.
The purpose of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day is to help raise awareness of the possibilities that the use of the Internet and other information and communication technologies can bring to societies and economies, as well as of ways to bridge the digital divide. World Telecommunication Day has been celebrated marking the founding anniversary of International Telecommunications Union (ITU) which was founded in 1865. Though the International Telegraph Union has since changed its name to International Telecommunications Union, it still remains the most important entity in the field of communications, thus remaining in the spotlight at World Telecommunications Day. There are several ways of communication available such as letters, telephones, mobiles, telegraphs but the internet is the widely used for communication and spreading or collecting information. The use of internet and other Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) can bring societies, economies as well as one of the ways to bridge the digital divide. The world is rapidly moving toward an economic system based on the continuous and ubiquitous availability of information. Recent advances in telecommunications technology have been an important vehicle in permitting information exchange to develop as a valuable commodity.
The theme focusses on the power of Big Data for development and aims to explore how to turn imperfect, complex, and often unstructured data into actionable information in the context of development. The celebration of this day increases awareness of the positive communication technology among people. It has the purpose to make the information and communication accessible easily to more people in remote and rural areas. Let us spread awareness of the importance of communication in our lives, to educate people how communication affects and exists in our lives.
