Virtual Community Meeting

A vibrant virtual community meeting took place on 31 October 2022. We discussed feedback from EuroDIG 2022 and how to approach our next meeting in Tampere, as well as how to proceed regarding the stakeholder processes of the UN Global Digital Compact. If you missed the meeting, you can watch the recording and find a summary of results at https://www.eurodig.org/get-involved/planning-process/#tab-programme-planning


Results of the Call for Issues

The call for issues ended on 31 October 2022. This call was the first (but not the last) opportunity for input, and we will now extract from these results potential Focus Areas for the 2023 EuroDIG programme, which will have the overarching theme "Internet in troubled times - Risks, resilience, hope".

Those results will be presented and further discussed at the IGF in Addis Ababa, with the aim to have agreed on the Focus Areas by the end of the year. However, input will still be possible and for this reason the online form to submit issues remains open at https://www.eurodig.org/get-involved/planning-process/
