Join EuroDIG Extra tomorrow

Tomorrow, March 3 at 9:00 UTC, we invite you to join the second EuroDIG Extra session, which is a new format of 90 minutes to discuss hot topics. This time, we will focus on the question: Should the IGF+ be supported by a Multi-Stakeholder High Level Body (MHLB)?

We are looking forward to your input, as we explore the function of a MHLB and its relationship to the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG). Our aim is to come up with a shared view from participants and make a submission to the IGF Consultation Process until 8th Mach 2021.

In order to participate, all you have to do is register on the EuroDIG website.
