+++ DIGital futures: promises and pitfalls +++ 6-7 June 2017, Tallinn +++

Thank you Estonia!

The 10th EuroDIG is history. From 6th-7th June around 600 participants have been warmly welcomed in Tallinn by the digital citizens of Estonia. We are looking back to two days of inspiring discussions, knowledge exchange and networking and, not to forget, an incredible birthday party!

Thanks to all who contributed to EuroDIG 2017 especially our host, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Estonia, the Estonian Internet Foundation, all Focal Points, Org Teams and those who contributed to the European Dialogue!

Besides the EuroDIG programme a number of pre and side events on day zero 5th June and the High Level Group on Internet Governance Meeting on 8th June were enriching the meeting.

Session reports can be found on the EuroDIG Wiki as well as transcripts for workshop and plenary sessions. Videos and pictures are also available. We will be compiling the “Messages from Tallinn” to be forwarded to the UN IGF and distributed among key institutions within Europe.

Hello Georgia!

EuroDIG is not a conference; it is a year round dialogue on politics and digitisation across the whole European continent which culminates in an annual event. Therefore beyond EuroDIG is just before the next EuroDIG and we are now looking forward to Tbilisi in Georgia.

As usual the call for topics for the next EuroDIG programme will start on 1st October until 31st December. More about the EuroDIG process

Youth participation matters!

Besides encouraging the European youth to join the org teams we organised 2 pre-events helping young people to get familiar with the topics discussed during EuroDIG. Youths residing in all European countries were encouraged to apply for a fellowship and proactively represent the European youth throughout the EuroDIG process. Learn more...
