About this Session
EuroDIG - Open Forum is a chance to meet and exchange with European stakeholder. Participants from other regions are most welcome!

European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG)


We would like to reflect on this year’s EuroDIG, which was being held as a fully virtual ‎meeting and highlight the topics that have been discussed - our Messages 2020. We will focus on the messages from the plenaries. (See list of presenters below.)

Thereafter we would like to exchange on how these Messages can become more influential and relevant to stakeholder also in the light of the discussion on the IGF+ Model. Concettina Cassa, AgID (Agency for Digital Italy of Prime Minister Office) and Co-Chair of the Working Group on IGF strengthening and strategy will provide an update on the work of this group.

If time allows, we would like to explore which challenges virtual meetings bear and which role they ‎will play in the light of climate change and emerging situations (like the corona virus spread). ‎

After a 30 min break we invite, in the context of a virtual booth activity, to an informal gathering and brain storming on the continuation of the discussion on "Greening Internet governance - Environmental sustainability and digital transformation".

Everyone is invited to join!

  • 30 min break
  • 9:30 – 10:45 (UTC) brain storming on how to continue the discussion on the topic "Greening Internet governance - Environmental sustainability and digital transformation"
