Join the consultation where EU-based stakeholders are invited to share insights for an open, free, and secure digital future

The Global Digital Compact has the ambition to develop shared principles for an open, free and secure digital future. In February and March of 2024, the UN General Assembly has separately convened member states and stakeholders for consultations on the Global Digital Compact, led by the co-facilitators Ambassador Anna Karin Eneström, Permanent Representative of Sweden to the UN, and Ambassador Chola Milambo, Permanent Representative of Zambia to the UN. A Zero Draft of the Global Digital Compact was shared on 1 April.

This event is meant to ensure that the voices of the non-governmental actors are channelled into the EU’s negotiating position and ultimately to the UN negotiating table.

The European External Action Service, the European Commission’s DG CNECT, and the EUI invite EU-based civil society organisations, the technical community, the private sector and academia to share insights on the Zero Draft as well as the EU priorities for the Global Digital Compact negotiations. 

In addition to the online discussion, the organisers encourage the interested stakeholders to submit their ideas in writing. Unless explicitly objected to by the authors, the submissions will be published on the EUI website. All written submissions should be sent to: [email protected]
