SEEDIG 6 is offering a space for several organisations to showcase their current/ongoing work on Internet/digital policy issues and have focused discussions with interested participants. Representatives of the several organisations are considered to be the ‘books’ and the others take up the role of the ‘readers’. The latter borrow the ‘book’ for three rounds of brief conversations (20 minutes each) during the event. You will meet in small groups, via Zoom breakout rooms, so these will be personalised conversations (not presentations).
Meet the books:
- Ceren Ünal, Internet Society - The Internet Society advocating across the globe for a trusted Internet, bridging the gap between policymakers and the technical community.
- Chengetai Masango, IGF Secretariat - The Internet Governance Forum is preparing for its 15th annual meeting. What does it have in store? And how far are we from IGF Plus?
- Gergana Petrova, RIPE NCC - How does RIPE NCC support the technical development of the Internet and what we observe in the SEE+ region?
- Katarina Anđelković, DiploFoundation - Have you ever thought about what happens to your electronic devices after you have thrown them away? While posing a serious threat, discarded electronics can also be a big part of the solution.
- Patrick Penninckx, Council of Europe – The Council of Europe dealing with digital transformation from a human rights perspective.
- Patrick Jones, ICANN - How does ICANN deal with the misuse of domain names, the impact of COVID-19 on the DNS, and other security issues?
