The IRPC is part of the organising team for several events at EuroDIG this year:
IRPC meeting, 28 June, 11.30am CEST
Do not miss our first official IRPC meeting at EuroDIG this year marking the start of the 10th anniversary of the Charter.
The session includes a very soft launch of the Italian translation of the Charter and we are very pleased to welcome the translation teams which include students from the universities of Padova and Salerno under the leadership of Edoardo Celeste, Claudia Padovani and Mauro Santaniello. They will give us some insight into the crucial outreach work undertaken by this team and so many other translation teams who work with the IRPC over the years to ensure that the Charter is available in the world’s main languages.
Focus Session 1: <https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Greening_Internet_Governance,_Part_II_%E2%80%93_Enabling_an_Environmentally_Sustainable_Digital_Transformation_in_Europe_%E2%80%93_FS_01_2021>
Greening Internet Governance, Part II – Enabling an Environmentally Sustainable Digital Transformation in Europe <https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Greening_Internet_Governance,_Part_II_%E2%80%93_Enabling_an_Environmentally_Sustainable_Digital_Transformation_in_Europe_%E2%80%93_FS_01_2021>, 29 June, 10.30 CEST
Another highlight of this year’s EuroDIG  and a follow up to  last year’s Plenary 4.
Preparations are underway and we are trialling a new format: a 3-hour focal session which includes an initial input session, followed by breakout sessions and finalised with an output session. 

We have been also involved in preparations of:
PRE 10: Open mic: COVID-19 in retrospective. <https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Open_mic:_COVID-19_in_retrospective_%E2%80%93_Pre_10_2021> 28 June 15:15 CEST
PRE 10 follow up: COVID-19 – THE Gamechanger?! <https://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/COVID-19_%E2%80%93_THE_Gamechanger%3F!_%E2%80%93_Pre_10_2021_follow_up>  28 June 15:15 CEST

IGF 2021
For the upcoming IGF the IRPC SC submitted two workshop proposals and the annual IRPC meeting proposal, which will reflect on the 10 Years of the Charter.

We will share more details on these as soon as we have news on the proposals status.
