Planning for EuroDIG2022

EuroDIG’s call for issues is open for another 10 days. Until December 31, you can submit up to three topics on the EuroDIG website. Submissions are welcome from all stakeholder groups, individuals and organisations.

In early February 2022, we will conduct a public planning meeting in which the submissions are structured by our Subject Matter Experts for a first draft of the 2022 programme. We hope to be able to conduct this meeting as a hybrid format in Trieste, with the support of the host of EuroDIG2022, and online.

New Chair of the Multistakeholder Advisory Group

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has appointed Paul Mitchell, a member of the business community and former Senior Director, Technology Policy and Internet Governance at Microsoft, to Chair the 2022 Internet Governance Forum (IGF) Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG). We congratulate Paul Mitchell and are looking forward to the upcoming years!

We also express our appreciation for the hard work and dedication of outgoing MAG Chair, Anriette Esterhuysen. She has, through her stewardship, prepared the implementation of the IGF Plus recommendations and thereby strengthened the IGF as a year-round, outcome-oriented process.

EuroDIG is committed to supporting the necessary reforms and strengthening linkages with other NRIs.

Seasonal break at EuroDIG

The EuroDIG Secretariat is on leave until January 10th. We wish you all a festive holiday season and a good start to 2022!

If you want to support our work, you can do so by making a donation. Every amount is appreciated and helps us to further multi-stakeholder Internet governance processes in Europe and beyond.
