EuroDIG 2021: Into Europe‘s Digital Decade
The European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) 2021 will take place as a fully online meeting from 28 – 30 June 2021.
The overarching theme in 2021 is "Into Europe‘s Digital Decade" and honours the many processes on the continent (EU and beyond) that contribute to new digital regulations, standards and norms for the upcoming years. EuroDIG aims to be a multi-stakeholder meeting ground where policy makers, the technical community, the private sector and civil society can discuss and exchange views about the Internet and how it is governed in an open, bottom-up manner.
The three-day event will tackle issues such as access and literacy, development of the Internet governance ecosystem, human rights, innovation, and economic issues, media and content, security and crime, technical and operational issues.
The meeting will be preceded by the Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance (YouthDIG), an initiative dedicated to preparing young people for their participation in EuroDIG. From April to June 2021, 30 young people (ages 18-30) from the pan-European region participated in the programme and developed policy recommendations on
- Digital Technologies within Government bodies
- Digital Self-Determination & Digital Literacy Platforms
The European Dialogue on Internet Governance is an open multi-stakeholder platform to exchange views about the Internet and how it is governed. First organised in 2008 by several organisations, government representatives and experts, it fosters dialogue and collaboration with the Internet community on public policy for the Internet – culminating in an annual conference that takes place in a different European city every year. EuroDIG Messages are prepared and presented to the Global Internet Governance Forum (IGF).
