Making Connections to Make a Difference at the 2020 Chapter Workshops

By Stine PhilipsenAdvisor, Advocacy and Community Mobilization

Each year during Chapter Workshops, representatives from across the Internet Society come together to advance their shared vision of an open and trusted Internet for everyone. They gather elbow-to-elbow on five different continents, sharing experiences and exchanging local, regional, and global perspectives. These annual workshops are a meeting ground for Internet Society Chapters, project leads, global colleagues, and our partners at the Internet Society Foundation – a chance to collaborate, define strategies, and develop plans.

Key to the Chapter Workshops is working closely to foster synergies, exchange lessons learned, spark engagement, and strengthen relationships across the global Internet Society community.

This year is a little different.

The 2020 Chapter Workshops come at a time when the world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic and relying on the Internet to enable continuity. We now understand too well the importance of having a better, reliable, and affordable Internet for everyone.

With this in mind, the Chapter Workshops have been tailored to this context and will take place virtually – where human connection will still be on the agenda. Each region has identified priority topics and developed their sessions accordingly.

Africa (22-25 September)

Europe (5-7 October)

Asia-Pacific (15-16 October)

North America & The Caribbean (19-23 October)

Middle East (23-24 October)

Latin America (26 October – 1 November)
