CITIZENS DELIBERATIONS FOR BETTER DECISIONS

Become a partner and you will be part of an ecosystem of stakeholders who will shape the Internet of tomorrow, together with the citizens. You will be part of the process and define the topics deemed crucial to this Citizens’ Dialogue. Your participation will produce elements to fuel your strategy, drawing on unique insights from citizens from across the world. To ensure the quality of the dialogues, we are welcoming a diversity of partners.

Citizens’ Dialogues provide quantitative and deliberative data reports on a local, national and international level.
They articulate the needs and visions of citizens on different levels, and provide new, smart insights. They provide added value for all stakeholders as they are based on the life experiences and knowledge of the citizens, and give a deeper and argumentative understanding of the desirable future of the Internet.

“We were delighted to add the voice of the citizens to the climate negotiations.”

– Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC about the World Wide Views summit on Climate & Energy 2015, co-coordinated by Missions Publiques
