Annual Review

Our Annual Review takes a brief but detailed view on our work over the previous year.

Action Plan: 2016

The Internet is changing everything for those who are connected, and those who once connected trust it enough to use it in new and audacious ways. In 2016, the Internet Society is uniquely positioned and motivated to advance in connecting everyone who is unconnected and promoting and restoring the trust in the Internet.

In this work, we are guided by our vision, we are focused on our goals, and we are driven to be bold. Read the Internet Society's 2016 Action Plan.
