The upcoming developments and the current global COVID-19 crisis bring an astonishing range of opportunities and challenges for industries, governments, civil society, and every human being.
It is therefore increasingly urgent that we, the people, make our voices and perspectives heard regarding the next steps for this incredible technology.

Who should decide how to leverage the opportunities brought by the use of digital technologies and mitigate the risks they involve? The Stakeholders’ Dialogue aimed to evaluate the three scenarios for the future of Internet governance proposed in the Report from the “High-Level Panel on Digital Cooperation”. Results will feed the process of the High Level Panel, which is overseen by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
