Community Forum - Extending The Chatham House discussion on the future Internet and Society




Thursday, June 15, 2017, 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM UTC

As part of our 25th anniversary, the Internet Society joined with Chatham House on 11 May for a discussion on the impact of the Internet on societies. This event brought together Internet experts, industry influencers, senior government officials, and opinion leaders to consider challenging questions and concerns about the future.

As a follow-up to this discussion, the Internet Society will host a Community Forum for its members to address key questions around whether the Internet of the future will be a force that brings people together or divides us.

This will be a 90-minute discussion moderated by Ms. Emily Taylor, Associate Fellow, Chatham House, and will feature several guest panelists, including:

Dr. Ismail Syed Shah, Chairman, Pakistan Telecommunications Authority
Ms. Rebecca MacKinnon, Director of the Ranking Digital Rights project at New America
Ms. Sally Wentworth, Vice President of Global Policy Development, Internet Society

Following remarks from the panel, we will open the conversation to our community.  How do you think the Internet will impact society in the future?  We want to hear from you!  When you register for this event, send your questions and perspectives to help us shape the discussion.
