Key outcomes


The Digital Nations Ministers met virtually on 18 November 2021, under the chairmanship of Chris Philp MP, Minister for Tech and the Digital Economy of the Government of the United Kingdom, to discuss the digital government agenda in line with the theme of ‘Digital Government in Open Societies: Sustainable, Inclusive, and Values-driven Innovation’.

The DN Charter is a non-binding document that outlines the key principles and governance for the Digital Nations group, signed by Ministers at the annual summit to reaffirm the commitment of the member country. The Charter was reviewed and updated in 2021.

The Digital Nations affirms the principles of a sustainable digital government, with a focus on environmental sustainability. As Digital Nations members, with the relevant government departments and agencies responsible for digital public services and operations, we will strive to reduce the potential negative environmental impact of our governments’ digital operations and contribute to climate targets, while delivering responsible, resilient digital services.
