The second event in the Values of Internet Technologies workshop series will be held in Bern on 27 April. The session will discuss the digital communication proposals by p≡p and Internet Society Switzerland in the framework of the ISOC-sponsored Beyond the Net project entitled ‘Implementing privacy via mass-encryption: standardizing Pretty Easy Privacy’s protocols’.

More details will follow soon.

Registration is now open (below), please sign up to reserve your seat.

The first workshop in the series took place in Bienne on 25 January. It discussed challenges to privacy, trust and human rights with experts from civil society and academia, followed by a hands-on training in the afternoon on secure communications technologies. The emphasis was on decentralization, a core design principle in the early days of the internet, that has now come under increased pressure in a digital era tightly controlled by big Internet companies. This series of workshops is open to policy-makers, technologists, researchers, programmers, activists, students and interested users and will continue in different cities in Switzerland. The agenda for the workshops is prepared in close alignment with the demand-side, meaning that it is driven by identified needs and conducted in cooperation with different stakeholder groups.

Outline of next workshops in this series: 

  •  Human Rights and present / future ICT ‒ Why and how are they related? Planned for September 2018
  • How can digitalization mitigate current challenges of humanity? Planned for November 2018
  • Migration towards new and responsible IT ‒ Pathways for enterprises and public organizations. Planned for January 2019
  • “A network of networks” ‒ What are the most important requirements for spreading diverse and Human Rights-solid free and open source digital communication? Planned for April 2019
