IGF 2022 Overarching Theme & Themes

Following its First Open Consultations and Meeting of the 2022 planning cycle, the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) has decided on an overarching theme for the 17th IGF: “Resilient Internet for a Shared Sustainable and Common Future”. The banner title references both the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Our Common Agenda.

In parallel, the constituent themes of the meeting have been conceived to closely align with the calls to action of the UN Secretary-General’s proposed Global Digital Compact.
