SEEDIG 7 Series
Internet in your native language: Universal Acceptance | 21 June 2021
On 21 June 2021 we hosted the SEEDIG 7 Series kick-off event under the overarching theme “Internet in your native language: Universal Acceptance”.
Universal Acceptance continues to be one of the most decisive concepts for the future of the Internet. According to the UN, by the end of 2030, the world economy will face another three billion new Internet users. The majority of them will be using non-Latin scripts. Therefore, Universal Acceptance is aimed to make the online environment more inclusive and barrierless for everyone.
We believe that the only way to solve technical problems and overcome administrative barriers is to strengthen cooperation between all stakeholder groups. Our event brought together community members, governmental representatives and DNS experts to brainstorm how to further advance Universal Acceptance in the SEE+ region.
