After consulting with the EuroDIG partners, the community, and our host, the ICTP in Trieste, the date for EuroDIG2021 can be confirmed for June 28-30, 2021. This includes, as is the EuroDIG tradition, a Day 0 in which organisations and initiatives can present their work, and engage with the community, followed by two full days of multi-stakeholder workshops, high-level sessions, and new formats. Mark your calendars, we hope that many of you can participate. We are aware that schedules fill up quickly and finding suitable dates was a challenging task.
Our youth participation programme “YOUthDIG” will take place June 26-28, 2021. More information on how to participate will be shared in a few weeks.
The next EuroDIG meeting will be planned as a hybrid format, with both an on-site event in Trieste, and remote participation options. While remote participation has been a longstanding practice at EuroDIG meetings, new ways to enhance the experience can build on the lessons learned in 2020.
Our experience of this year has also shown: planning an in-person gathering is subject to an increased level of uncertainty in times of a pandemic. The EuroDIG Secretariat, partners and the host will continuously evaluate the situation, so changes to the format might ensue if needed.
YOU CAN SHAPE EURODIG2021
The programme of EuroDIG2021 is shaped by you, the EuroDIG community. In an easy online form, you can now submit up to three proposals for issues. Thereby, you can tell us what the most important European Internet policy themes are and what needs to be talked about next year. Just submit your idea(s) on our website. These are not proposals for sessions, so you do not need to worry about the format or potential speakers at this point. The call for issues is open until December 6.
