Held on April 23rd and 24th 2014 in São Paulo, Brazil, the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on The Future of Internet Governance or NETmundial was a global event to discuss the evolution of Internet Governance focused on two main axes:
- Crafting Internet Governance principles and
- Proposing a roadmap for the further evolution of the Internet Governance ecosystem.
Why is it important?
NETmundial was one step in a series of key events happening in 2014/2015 that will shape the future of how the Internet is governed.
The Internet Society saw it as yet another opportunity to put in practice the Internet's collaborative model of governance by supporting an open, bottom up, multi-stakeholder, transparent and accountable processes.
