Internet health – how do we define, measure, and foster it for social good?
Join us as we gather experts for a checkup on the state of the internet and a closer look at key initiatives designed to monitor, evaluate, and improve the digital ecosystem for civil society.
Lucy Bernholz, Director of the Digital Civil Society Lab (DCSL), will lead a conversation with:
- Solana Larsen, Editor of Mozilla’s Internet Health Report;
- Dhanaraj Thakur, Senior Research Manager at the Alliance for Affordable Internet and the World Wide Web Foundation; and
- Jessica Feldman, media theorist, artist, and Postdoctoral Fellow at the DCSL.
The panel will discuss methodologies and case studies for gauging internet health across key indicators, such as openness, inclusion, privacy, security, decentralization, and others.
How is ICT policy shaping internet health across different continents and countries? What are we seeing in terms of strengths, weaknesses, and disparities? How can we not only identify but successfully address gaps and vulnerabilities to foster improved internet health?
We’ll explore these issues and more, including questions from the virtual audience, as we consider the latest diagnoses of internet health and next steps for digital civil society.
