Stockholm Internet Forum 2017 (SIF17) will be held on 17-18 May 2017, at Münchenbryggeriet in Stockholm, Sweden. The event is organised by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
SIF is an international forum for in-depth dialogue and discussion on how a free, open, and secure Internet promotes human rights and development worldwide. Under the slogan 'Leave no one offline', SIF17 will focus on the connections between access and power. The empowering benefits of Internet accessibility will be disseminated and analysed from an intersectional perspective, targeting political, economic, and social aspects of power. A major focus will also be on community building and learning, making sure that the competence of participating individuals and organisations is used at its most.
The event will bring togetherparticipants engaged in digital development and freedom of expression from all over the world, including Internet activists, members of academia, representatives of companies, organisations and governments, entrepreneurs, digital innovators, etc.
