2020 European Chapters Workshop. Recordings

5-7 October 2020 / Venue: Online

“A bigger and stronger Community for a bigger and stronger Internet”

Internet Society European Chapters Workshops are interactive, collaborative spaces for Chapter members with the aim to share knowledge and experience, and to strengthen the capacities necessary to support our mission and vision. Workshops are open to Chapter members who wish to learn and contribute to the development of their local Chapter.

Past Chapter Workshops took place in a physical location within our European region. This year’s Workshop was held online due to Covid-19 restrictions with half-day sessions that included two topical issues each day.
