The 2021 edition of the Internet Governance forum (IGF) will be hosted by the Government of Poland at the International Congress Center in Katowice from 6 to 10 December.
The headline of this year’s Forum is Internet United – the Internet connecting all its users into one community, responsible for its shape and functioning. The five-day meeting will include a large number of workshops, open forums, dynamic coalition meetings, outputs of intersessional activities, and other events that will give participants the opportunity to engage in open discussions on multiple Internet governance and digital policy issues. National and regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) will share experiences and discuss their specificities, challenges, and plans for the future. Several main sessions will also be part of the programme.
