Global Citizens' Dialogue on Internet [Malaysia]

Organized by Missions Publiques and implemented in Malaysia by The IO Foundation.

The Internet plays a vital role in how we see the world, from enabling long distance communications to facilitate learning to capturing acts of strength and courage or shining a light on injustice.

The Global Citizens' Dialogue on Internet is a global initiative to bring citizens's voice to global Internet Governance organized by Missions Publiques and implemented online in Malaysia by The IO Foundation on the 17th and 18th October 2020.

Held in over 70 territories worldwide, it is the largest citizen consultation on the Internet ever. Citizens from all all walks of life will gather in Europe, Africa, South America, North America and Asia to discuss about the most pressing and significant issue of our time: the future of the Internet.

Take a seat at the Global Citizens' Dialogue on Internet and directly influence the digital developments of your own city and region.

The IO Foundation (TIOF) is a global non-profit organization advocating for Data-Centric Digital Rights.
Born from a fundamental concern about the state of Digital Rights in the world, its mission is to promote, protect and provide solutions for Digital Rights, thus aiming to bridge technological and humanitarian perspectives.
As data becomes an increasingly powerful economic, political, and social force, programmers are emerging as the next generation of human rights defenders.
