Pre-IGF Stakeholder Speed Dating

‹ Back
Help us create an Internet that’s open to all and governed by all. An Internet as diverse as the world it serves. Accessible, affordable and truly inclusive. #CountMyVoice

The Internet Society, together with the United Nations University GREMLIN project, invite you to join us for an evening of networking in Brussels before this year’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Paris on 12-14 November.

Come meet others as you ‘speed date’ people from different communities and find out “what they are looking for in a relationship… with the UN IGF!” There is no day zero at the IGF this year so we are focused on starting the conversation in Brussels!

Our speakers include:

  • Olivier Bringer, Head of Unit, DG Connect, European Commission
  • Marie-Noemie Marques, International Regulatory Affairs, Orange
  • Diego Naranjo, Policy Advisor, European Digital Rights (EDRI)

The discussion is moderated by the Internet Society.

We also invite you to consider some of these questions to discuss at the event:

  • What role should the IGF play in the future governance of the Internet?
  • Should the IGF’s mandate be changed to focus on outputs? If so, how?
  • Is the IGF successfully implementing the multistakeholder model?
