What will it take? Building a future so the Internet brings opportunity to Europe.

Wondering how the Internet will impact your future in Europe? You’re not the only one.

We are only beginning to understand the full value that the Internet can bring to tomorrow’s world.

So how can we make certain the Internet of the tomorrow will help to do things like create jobs, ensure every citizen has access to municipal services, and close the divide between urban and rural areas?

A series of global talks now known as the Internet Society’s Regional Internet Development Dialogues are intended to help answer those questions and more.

The next one is in Brussels, Europe on November 7th 2017 and you’re invited:

Internet of Opportunity: Will the Internet Benefit all Europeans?

By bringing together people from very different backgrounds, these dialogues are meant to create a way for people to hear views and opinions outside of their comfort zone – and also to build understanding and unexpected partnerships.

The full day event, which is open to everyone who feels they have a stake in the Internet’s future, will bring together policy and decision makers, business leaders, and Europeans who want to make sure people can build a prosperous future.

Now is your chance to tell some of Europe’s leading decision makers how you would use the Internet to build a stronger digital economy.

Join us at the 2017 European Regional Internet and Development Dialogue.

Here’s how.

There’s no doubt about it, the Internet will promote drastic shifts across all sectors of the future Internet economy. All parts of society – from local communities to education systems, healthcare, and public services – will have to adapt to the pace of change. How that happens is up to each of us.

Help us Shape Tomorrow and create a digital future where humanity is at the centre of Europe’s digital future.

Read the CEPS paper that will be launched and debated at RIDD.
