Deadline extended! Call for issues is open until Friday

Our deadline is extended until Friday, December 11, the #EuroDIG2021 Call for Issues is therefore still open. So, if you have missed out on the first round, this is your chance to still submit your ideas here. So far, we have received 81 inputs.

Some community members reported on Sunday, that they had technical problems with the submission form. In case you have already sent in your ideas but they do not show up on our website, please try to re-enter. We are sorry for any inconveniences in the process! Your submissions are the basis of the EuroDIG planning for 2021, so we definitely don’t want to miss any of them.

Join the intersessional project on Greening the Internet

In 2020, the discussion on environmental sustainability and digital transformation was more prominent at the EuroDIG agenda than ever. Our community explored approaches to reduce the environmental impact of the digitisation and foster its potential for more sustainability. We believe that this discourse deserves more attention in Interne governance and needs spaces to elaborate. Therefore, we are starting a new intersessional workflow under the theme of “Greening the Internet”. This project is open for collaboration. More information on how to get involved, you can find on the EuroDIGWiki.
