A GLOBAL CITIZENS’ DIALOUGE ON THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET Add your voice to a global citizen discussion with people from over 75 countries. Your input will be used to feed into global negotiations about how the Internet should be governed. The Internet plays a vital role in how we see the world, as access to information has become dominant at the local and global level. But who gets to own our digital identity? How can we put an end to today’s digital divide? How can we be sure of getting high-quality information online? WE, THE INTERNET is bringing together the voices of thousands of citizens in Europe, Africa, South America, North America and Asia. Informed, deliberative, and neutral, these two 4-hours virtual forums will generate critical information for decision makers to influence the digital developments and future of internet governance.   Add Your Voice! Join in and share your views in an online forum about the role of internet in your daily lives. You will meet fellow citizens, share your hopes and concerns, and engage in thoughtful dialogue.
