Europe's Digital Principles for 2030 – Towards a Digitally Inclusive Union


Please read the Privacy Statement carefully before joining the meeting.

The Digital Decade Futurium Community is happy to invite you to our fourth webinar to present the Commission’s proposal for a Declaration on Digital Rights and Principles and discuss how we can build a more digitally inclusive Europe by 2030.

The event will take place on Wednesday 18th May, 2022, from 12:00 to 14:00pm CET. Mark this date on your calendars and, when it’s time, click on the link under “Registration URL” at the top of the page.


The webinar will be divided into two parts:

  1. Dynamic presentations to set the scene on Europe’s vision for a more digitally inclusive Union by 2030 and to better understand what people across Europe think of digital rights and principles.
  2. A moderated panel discussion with representatives from a variety of different organizations working in the field of digital inclusion.

Both sessions will be followed by a Q&A during which participants will be invited to post their questions on the “Digital Principles” discussion forum. This will allow for all questions to remain open for further conversations on the platform even after the webinar.
