Co-organizer: Alliance for Affordable Internet
Session in brief:  This session aims to explore how the goal of increasing affordable internet access to bring everyone online must be coupled with the responsibility to provide safe and private online spaces for all.

The panel will reflect on how current initiatives towards digital inclusion are leading us to rethink how to harness the power of technology to address the threats of exclusion, especially as these mirror offline marginalization and inequality.

The panel will be challenged to propose responsible actions to improve access for all and discuss what their organisations are doing to embrace our collective responsibility towards universal, affordable and meaningful digital inclusion.
