IGF 2019 Pre-Event #10 Internet Commons Forum

FGV Law School


The Internet Commons Forum (ICF) is jointly organised by FGV, ISOC, APC and Centrum Cyfrowe.  The ICF aims at gathering thinkers and doers that are developing ideas and solutions for a less concentrated and more just Internet. See http://www.intcomforum.org/ 

The structures of the Internet affect us more deeply than ever before, reaching out to all aspects of our lives, from our societies and cultures to our finances and politics – to our very individual human behaviours and identities. This  event will explore different views of Internet Commons exploring strategies for a less concentrated Internet.

Every session will feature weel-respected thinkers and doers exposing their ideas and innovative approaches for 10 minutes each and subsequently engaging in a collaborative discussion with the participants in order to identify paths for collaborations.
