What can be done?
Internet health can’t improve if tech creators continue to follow the same old guidelines. We need to find the ways in which both current and new creators of digital spaces around the world can open their cultural horizons and learn to imagine a truly diverse and inclusive internet.
The community behind the Internet Freedom Festival opened safe and empathetic spaces for people around the world to learn, discuss, and develop projects devoted to digital security and internet health.
