ICANN58 EURALO-NCUC Outreach Event - What can you change at ICANN?
Invitation to NCUC-EURALO outreach at ICANN 58, Copenhagen, Denmark
11 March, 2017, 15:00-18:00 | Hall B4.2
Noncommercial Users Constituency (NCUC) and European Regional At-Large Organization (EURALO) invite you to participate in an outreach session for civil society, academia and end users.
Location: Bella Center Copenhagen (Center Blvd. 5, 2300 København S, Denmark)
Time: during the 58th public meeting of The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) on 11th of March 2017, at 15:00 –18:00.
Join our interactive discussion with ICANN veterans and new community members – we are going to convince you why ICANN is different this year and why you should care and join or at least keep up to date with what is going on!
We are NGOs and civil society organisations, Internet users and academics who believe that everyone has a stake in Internet governance, and everyone can participate and contribute to Internet policy. We ensure that civil society and end users have a strong voice in ICANN and contribute to policy processes. NCUC and EURALO deal with many critical issues related to domain name system at ICANN, such as human rights, data protection, jurisdiction, access to domain names, transparency, diversity, and many more.
We will introduce NCUC and EURALO, explain what has happened at ICANN last year during and after the transition from US oversight, and open the floor for discussion on various topics, where civil society, academia and users are contributing to policy making.
You can bring up any issue of your interest and get the answer on how we are addressing it at ICANN. Privacy? Accountability? Jurisdiction? Cybersecurity? Anything else? NCUC and EURALO members are working on these issues and would be happy to discuss them with you!
The Outreach will be followed by an informal reception, where you can meet like-minded people and continue the discussion.
We look forward to seeing you on 11 March at the Bella Centre Copenhagen.
