The 2017 Global Voices Summit is open for registration!

We'll be gathering this year in Colombo, Sri Lanka on December 2-3 to discuss the evolving state of the open Internet, online civic movements and human rights in the digital age. In interactive sessions, panels, and debates, we will explore issues ranging from misinformation/disinformation, to corporate control of the internet, to legal threats against bloggers and activists—all challenges that could make or break the future of the internet.

Joining us will be communities and organizations central to the history and future of the open internet, both globally and regionally, including Creative Commons, Mozilla, Wikipedia, the Web Foundation, the Association of Progressive Communications, IFEX, the MIT Media Lab, the Digital Asia Hub, in addition to the leading lights of Sri Lanka’s internet culture, and many others.

The Summit will take place at TRACE Expert City, a technology hub and incubator in Colombo's Maradana district.

Visit our registration page to reserve your spot at the Global Voices Summit 2017, and keep checking in on the Summit web site over the coming weeks as we develop the Summit programme and post stories, audio and interviews.

We’ll see you in December!

The Global Voices Citizen Media Summit 2017 has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Ford Foundation, Mozilla, MacArthur Foundation and Groundviews/Centre for Policy Alternatives.
