At the Internet Society, we believe the Internet can help improve the quality of your life and the lives of people everywhere. Too ambitious? We think it’s possible – but only with the help of our partners, Chapters, and individual members.

Together we work to promote policies that sustain an Internet that’s open and has a universally accessible platform for innovation, creativity, and economic opportunity.
