Join us at Finnish IGF 2022!
Finnish IGF 2022
Internet governance going forward
Thursday 29 September 2022 | 12:00-13:30 UTC
Almost two decades after the initial World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) and the convening of the IGF, much of digital policy and related processes have changed. Many communities felt inspired by the IGF and started their own national and regional IGFs. Among them, EuroDIG, as the regional IGF for Europe, and the Finnish Internet Forum (FIF), have been running their processes for years.
The IGF has been at the centre of the UN Secretary-General’s digital agenda. In his Roadmap for Digital Cooperation, he called for advancing the IGF by introducing the high-level multistakeholder body, recently announced as the IGF Leadership Panel. Calls for changes continue. For example, in the Secretary-General’s Our Common Agenda Report, it is called for the IGF to ‘’adapt, innovate and reform’’ and designing a Global Digital Compact (GDC) was proposed. What are these changes about and what are the areas the GDC will focus on? Would it reflect the contemporary digital policy issues? What does our digital future look like? These questions and more will be discussed during this session.
The discussions are timely, as next year, not only Finland will host its traditional annual meeting, but it will also bring European stakeholders to its traditional city of Tampere for the 16th annual meeting of EuroDIG. We are discussing these and many more questions with everyone! Join us for an interactive exchange of views and ideas.
Join us, hear from experts and share your ideas.
The calendar invite is attached. We look forward to speaking to you.
