Keeping the internet global

What is Europe’s role in shaping a global internet? What is the role of standard-setting and new governance models in shaping a better future internet?

A sustainable, interoperable internet

How can we build an internet that is open, inclusive and sustainable? We will discuss how Europe can drive forward the transition towards a greener and more equitable internet. Our conversations will explore how abstract ideas like interoperability and decentralisation can be applied to create a more democratic, human-centric internet and what more Europe can do to support the open source community.
