Dear all

A quick update on the two workshops under the theme "Confronting the 
Digital Divide" that IRPC has been working on for the upcoming EuroDIG 
next week: Workshop 2 
(co-organized with the IFLA) and WS 10 
with the Greens/Pirate Party MEP group) are now live on the EuroDIG 
Wikipages. Both are promising to be very rich, and groundbreaking open 

If any of you are in Brussels, who are considering attending the EuroDIG 
then tomorrow is the last day to register.

Remote participation is possible so if you cannot make it in person, do 
join us for either or both of these workshops live. Or failing that, all 
are welcome to participate in the Discussions via the Wiki pages linked 
in above; as you can see the many from the wider org.team have already 
been very engaged with points for discussion.

These two sessions will provide us all with an opportunity to make some 
headway in unpacking a number of other areas where human rights and 
internet governance are intertwined 
e.g. how dealing with structural, and cultural obstacles to ensuring 
full access for minorities (WS 2) and for refugees/newcomers (WS 10) to 
all the services the majority of internet users in Europe take for 
granted are integral to moving the agenda for the full spectrum of human 
rights frameworks for the future of the internet's  "good governance".

Best wishes

●*Registration is closing on 31 May 2016*

Please register <http://www.eurodig.org/eurodig-2016/registration/>now!

●*Prepare your statement for the opening session!*

We would like to hear your opinion first! Therefore the opening session 
will be a moderated open mic session without any panel. We encourage 
everyone to prepare a 2 min statement related to the overarching theme. 
We would like to hear what are your expectations, thoughts or concerns 
about the digital (r)evolution.

●*What is in it for me?*

Org teams worked hard in the last couple of weeks to organise an 
interactive and high level session for you. Human rights in the context 
of economic development will be the focus of this year’s EuroDIG and is 
a result of the call for issues. But we will also look into some special 
topics like fragmentation of the Internet, the development of the 
Internet governance ecosystem, cyber security, the IANA transition and 
many more…
