Trust is the key issue in defining the future value of the Internet.
Mobilizing our Community toward Building, Promoting and Defending Trust on the Internet
#SecureIt  #DontBreakTheInternet  #KeepItOn
Global perspective

In 2019, the Internet Society (ISOC) Chapter workshops/Advocacy-Meetings will mobilize, strengthen and engage our Chapters and SIGs around our 2019 action plan. We believe that these meetings represent a unique opportunity to define concrete roles for our Chapters/SIGs to work with us on our global initiatives, but create local impact: “Think global, act local.”  

Regional perspective

The 2019 African Chapters Advocacy Meeting mobilized, empowered and engaged the African chapters’ representatives to advance the Internet Society 2019 action plan in the Africa region with a special focus on “Building Trust” (IoT Security Campaign, Privacy & Personal Data Protection, Encryption, User Trust and Internet Restrictions). The meeting took place on 8-11 April 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It happened alongside an Internet of Things (IoT) Security engagement Workshop with the Africa Union Commission (AUC), the Africa Telecommunication Union (ATU) and Regional Economic Commissions (RECs). This meeting was an opportunity to build and strengthen relationships and connections with our Chapters and among chapters themselves.

We also welcomed 30 fellows from 26 Internet Society African chapters (26 countries) and one global SIG (Internet of Things (IoT) SIG).
