5 years EuroDIG
Resume of the Stockholm meeting and looking forward to Lisbon 2013
Internet has become an integral part of our lives and is shaping our society. But are we as a society governing the Internet in a wise way? Do we all accept our responsibilities to safeguard the continued development of the Internet as a global, inclusive, open and safe virtual environment? Do we ensure that our European values are reflected in the written and unwritten rules governing the Internet? And who sets the rules? EuroDIG constitutes an important platform for multistakeholders to meet in an open and inclusive environment to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the future of the Internet. We are all concerned with the development of rules; governments, businesses, non-profit organizations and citizens. Different stakeholders have different needs, and we need to articulate them and learn about them in order to meet the challenges of today and move forward.
The session will be divided into 3 parts:
We will present the "Messages from Stockholm" and look back to EuroDIG 2012
2. OPEN DISCUSSION:
All European stakeholders and in particular organisers of European national IGFs are invited to contribute to the discussion how European values are reflected in the global Internet development.
3. LOOKING FORWARD:
The call for issues for EuroDIG 2013 will be opened and we will introduce the milestones to Lisbon.
