EuroDIG News

EuroDIG 2022 successfully took place in Trieste and online last week and we want to thank everyone who contributed to it before, during and after! The focus discussions and workshops were insightful and lively, all due to you, the EuroDIG community.

Citizen-outreach in Trieste

Together with the City of Trieste and GÉANT’s TNC22 conference, we conducted a pre-event to reach out to citizens. The stream of “Come funziona Internet” (all talks are in English) is available here.

Youth Participation

After two years of online YOUthDIGs, young newcomers could finally join the community in person again. 30 participants spent the days before EuroDIG in an intense exchange with peers and experts, and were active in all EuroDIG sessions. The Youth Messages on AI, social media, sustainability and crypto were presented on the main stage and can be found on the EuroDIGWiki.

EuroDIG Messages

The EuroDIG messages were drafted by the reporters of the Geneva Internet Platform according to the four Focus Areas and were presented, discussed and adapted at the end of each day. Instead of having messages for every session, this updated approach produces more concise outcomes. The current versions of the messages are being fact-checked with the help of the Org Teams until next week.

Event Recordings

The video streams are now available on EuroDIG’s YouTube channel. Pictures and transcripts will be published soon.
