2020 Middle East Chapters Meeting

The 2020 Middle East Chapters Workshop was distinctive and diverse.

It allowed more members than usual to participate and had a larger number of experts willing to share their knowledge while learning from our members how to use this knowledge in order to improve Internet Accessibility in the MENA region.

This led to better understanding or assessment of this area’s situation and possible moves for growing the Internet in a secure way. It also generated strong advocates for ISOC projects within our communities. 

The workshop took place on 23-24 October.

Objective of the activity:
  • Connect, motivate and strengthen our chapters.
  • Share knowledge and experience between Chapter representatives and Internet Society Staff.
  • Engage Chapter leaders and members in the Internet Society’ s 2020/2021 project work.
  • Support Chapters in turning the 2020 projects into local concrete, implementable activities.
