Description

The structures of the Internet affect us more deeply than ever before, reaching out to all aspects of our lives, from our societies and cultures to our finances and politics – to our very individual human behaviours and identities. This event will explore different views of Internet Commons, Digital Commons, and Digital Public Goods, exploring strategies for a less concentrated Internet.

The Internet Commons Forum (ICF) has been jointly organised by CTS-FGV, APC, and Free2Air, since 2019. The ICF aims at gathering thinkers and doers that are developing ideas and solutions for a less concentrated and more just Internet.
