From Call to Action: Visions for a Contract for the Web

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In November 2018, Tim-Berners Lee put out a call for companies, governments, and civil society to work together on a Contract for the Web. The Web Foundation has taken up that call to coordinate a range of discussions across different thematic areas – access, openness, data privacy, positive tech – to set guidelines and accountability standards for supporting better industry practices and public regulations for the digital age. We're excited to share our progress and also want to get wider feedback on what you think it should be! We'll update you on the Contract's development and then breakout into thematic groups, led by key stakeholders drafting the Contract itself, to give you a chance to input on its development, suggest standards for inclusion in the final text, and set goals for the digital rights community to keep accountability standards high and effective to instigate meaningful change from the web we have to the web we want.
