Following the event, Citizens’ recommendations will be collated submitted to the Internet Governance Forum 2020, under the theme "Internet United". As such, this is an opportunity for citizens to become the decision-makers of their own digital lives.
The event will take place online, over two days and across four sessions of 2 hours each. In each session, participants will be guided through the discussions by experienced facilitators. The ones who will take part in all the workshops will receive an e-certificate.

No prior knowledge on the topics is needed. Just be open minded and ready to interact with other citizens!
In the online version, you will find some explanatory videos about Citizens’ Dialogues.
