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.
