The Pan-European dialogue on Internet governance (EuroDIG) will take place on 30-31 May 2011 in Belgrade, Serbia.
The programme of the meeting is available here, and will discuss issues such as privacy and anonymity, freedom of speech, digital literacy and emerging internet services and bisiness models, to name just a few.
Several factors may hamper physical attendance to the EuroDIG, such as professional commitments and travel costs. But options for e-participation in EuroDIG will be offered with the support from DiploFoundation. It will be possible to organize EuroDIG hubs in every city.
What are the Hubs?
The hubs are local meetings that take place in parallel with the main meeting. People can watch the webcast together and send questions (text or video) that will be answered by panelists in EuroDIG. In addition, hub organisers can hold debates to discuss the themes introduced at the EuroDIG, but from a local perspective. There are several advantages in creating a hub: it helps to raise awareness about Internet Governance issues, it fosters networking among participants and community building and it encourages follow-up activities.
To learn more about the hubs and to register a hub, please visit the EuroDIG website.
