The NETmundial Initiative remains an iterative process and can only evolve through the broad-based involvement of stakeholders from across the world. The same applies to this provisional website: please help us with its construction.
The pace of innovation and highly distributed nature of the Internet requires a new approach to global governance and cooperation. The NETmundial Initiative will energize a global movement towards a distributed Internet governance ecosystem to propel the Internet as a shared, neutral, and global resource for human solidarity and economic progress.
The objective of the NETmundial Initiative is to provide an open, generative, and collaborative space, inviting permission-less innovation to build and deliver distributed Internet governance enablers and solutions. The NETmundial Initiative provides an online platform to (i) facilitate "crowd-sourcing" of enablers and solutions from the global community; and (ii) energize "crowd-funding" to finance/support the development and implementation of such enablers and solutions.
Diverse, global participation is a necessary component that embodies the NETmundial spirit and the multistakeholder, bottom-up approach endorsed as the way forward in improving the existing Internet governance framework. The global Internet community is invited to contribute proposals or ideas to introduce and build dynamic coalitions and to develop enablers/solutions for distributed Internet governance. Contribute here.
All of the activities of the NETmundial initiative are anchored firmly in the principles and roadmap developed in community consensus at the historic NETmundial meeting held in São Paulo. We invite you to join the conversation and look forward to your feedback on all matters pertaining to the Initiative.
