Global Citizens’ and Stakeholders’ Dialogue

“We, the Internet”

Over the last 40 years, the Internet has become a common good for humankind. The upcoming developments and the current global COVID-19 crisis bring an astonishing range of opportunities and challenges for industries, governments, civil society, and every human being. It is therefore increasingly urgent that we, the people, make our voices and perspectives heard regarding the next steps for this incredible technology. So, join a Citizens’ or Stakeholders’ Dialogue and help shape the future of the Internet!

Internet Governance with
and for citizens

June 2020 – Stakeholders’ Dialogue

On June 5th and 6th, we are inviting stakeholders worldwide to discuss the future of Internet governance. How should we shape the future of digital cooperation? Who should decide what to leverage the opportunities brought by the use of digital technologies and mitigate the risks they involve? The Stakeholders’ Dialogue aims to evaluate the three scenarios for the future of Internet governance proposed in the Report from the “High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation”. Results will feed the process of the High Level Panel (link here), which is overseen by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

Sign up for the stakeholders’ dialogue – it’s free!
Join us for a 3-hour session online (English, French or Spanish).
Four timeslots available between June 5th & June 6th.

October 2020 – Citizens’ Dialogue

On October 10th, groups of hundreds of ordinary citizens will meet, get informed, discuss, and deliver a collective view on the core stakes of digitalization. Participants will be selected to represent the diversity of their regions and countries and will come from all walks of life.
Those dialogues will help provide quantitative and qualitative data at global, national, and regional levels. They will articulate the needs and visions of citizens worldwide, and provide smart new insights. Topics will be “Internet and me”, “Building a strong digital identity”, “Creating an inclusive digital public sphere” and “Governing artificial intelligence”.

Registration will start in July 2020
