EuroDIG 2018

Help us switch on the Internet, community by community.

EuroDIG will take place on 5 – 6 June 2018 (plus day zero) in Tbilisi in Georgia, in Rooms Hotel. It will be hosted by the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia.

The EuroDIG plenary session on access “Bridging the urban-rural digital gap – a commercial or community effort?” will be preceded by a lightning talk on Tusheti Community Networks Project.

The Internet Society partnered with its Georgian Chapter and several Georgian Internet organisations to connect the remote and mountainous region of Tusheti to the Internet. The project was launched in September 2017 opening new opportunities for tourism and cultural preservation, and providing an essential communication channel for healthcare and potential emergency situations. Read the case study for more information.

Raúl Echeberría, Vice President Global Engagement, is one of the key participants at the plenary session.

The Internet Society is an Institutional Partner of this event.
