Global Citizens’ and Stakeholders’ Dialogue
“We, the Internet”
Stakeholders & citizens: let’s shape the future of Internet governance
June 2020 – Stakeholders’ Dialogue
On June 5th and 6th, we invited stakeholders worldwide to discuss the future of Internet governance. How should we shape the future of digital cooperation? Who should decide how 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.
The Stakeholders’ Dialogue will help me determine the future I want Internet to take. Only together will we be able to determine the best approaches to global problems.
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.
Fake news, contact tracing and cybersecurity are issues that must be addressed. But the most important question remains where to discuss these matters.
