The Brazilian Pre-Internet Governance Forum (IGF), 'V Forum da Internet no Brasil, Pre IGF Brasileiro' will be held 15-17 July in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.
CGI.br promotes the Brazilian Internet Forum aiming at bringing together participants from the government, business, academia, civil society organizations, technicians, students and all those interested and those involved in the discussions and issues regarding the Internet in Brazil and worldwide. The Forum is therefore an open opportunity and an invitation to discuss the current and future challenges of the Internet as a whole.
Maintaining and deepening the multi-stakeholder and multilateral model of the Brazilian Internet governance, CGI.br encourages the representatives of its sectors to monitor and express their views on issues and possible consensual solutions for the consolidation and expansion of a diverse, universal, innovative Internet in Brazil that espouses freedom, human rights and privacy as stated by its Principles for the Governance and the Use of the Internet.
The motto of Brazilian Internet Forum this year is "Evolution of Internet Governance: Empowering Sustainable Development", in line with the IGF theme to be held in November at João Pessoa, Brazil.
