On 1 March, the Dynamic Teen Coalition, one of the IGF's twenty-nine independent, bottom-up dynamic coalitions (DCs), addressed open consultations for the UN Global Digital Compact (GDC), a digital principles pact to be presented to Member States at the Summit of the Future in September this year. 

DTC member Omor Furuque called for "clear commitments" and "achievable goals" in the GDC, and urged policymakers to take young people's voices into account.
