Rising to the Good ID Challenge

The 2019 ID2020 Summit, entitled “Rising to the Good ID Challenge”

As we approach 2020, the 2019 Summit offers an opportunity to take stock of progress, evaluate our individual and collective roles in advancing good digital ID, and ensure alignment on key priorities. ID2020 Alliance partners will convene the 2019 Summit, entitled Rising to the Good ID Challenge on September 19th in New York City.

Stakeholders from across the digital ID ecosystem, including government leaders, technologists, civil society advocates and development organizations, will gather for intimate, candid discussions on:

Taking stock of progress and failings towards user-centric, privacy- protecting and portable digital ID.

The heightened urgency of our work, particularly when increased interest in closing the ID gap - through any means - may be outpacing the #GoodID movement.

The roles for regulators, market-based approaches, and funders in protecting privacy and spurring the adoption of user-centric, privacy- protecting and portable digital ID.

The route from #GoodID to widespread adoption of digital ID solutions that meet - or exceed - our standards for “good”?
