Debate - Auditorium - 60 Min


EuroDIG this year was shaped around 4 Focus Areas:

  • Digital sovereignty – is Europe going in the right direction to keep the Internet safe and open?
  • Reality check – do we implement effective regulations and set the right standards to solve the problems of the future?
  • Coming next – outlook on new technologies and can existing governance bodies cope with them?
  • Internet in troubled times

We would like to present our Messages from Trieste including the YOUthDIG Messages in order to feed them into the global debate.

In addition, we will discuss the preliminary results from the Call for Issues for the upcoming EuroDIG 2023 in Tampere, as well as the European Stakeholder Consultation on the Global Digital Compact.
