How important is trust on the internet?  Are our online identities safe?
These are just some of the questions likely to come up at the 2013 UK  Internet Governance Forum which takes place on Tuesday 10th September in Central London.

Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey  MP is already confirmed as a keynote speaker. Other leading commentators  from politics, academia, civil society and industry will also contribute  to the debate and help to influence the next global Internet Governance  Forum.

The Childnet IGF Youth delegation will also bring the views of younger users to the discussions.

2020Media attended the recent UK internet governance forum, held at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills on 3rd February.

The meeting brought together reports  from the international Sharm El Sheikh meeting, and discussed the future of the IGF. Chaired by a cross-party group of MPs, the meeting attracted representatives, from amongst others, Nominet, Childnet, LINX, Internet Safety groups and regional goverment.

Although 2020Media is a small part of the internet in the UK, we believe participation in events like the UK Internet Governance Forum is important. At the moment, we are lucky enough that we as ordinary users and businesses can have a say in the governance and direction of internet strategy so it’s essential that we exercise that right.

One of the sections focussed on GreenIT, which we promote through EcoServ, a division offering highly efficient dedicated servers and virtualisation technology.
