What should the Internet - and all it encompasses, which means pretty much everything - really do for humanity? How should it work? How should it be governed?
The Internet of Humans Project is a quest to understand how we the people, who contribute towards building the evolution of the Internet and our digital technologies, actively build a better future against a backdrop of massive social, economic, ecological and political challenges.
How we and everyone we know can participate:
- Sign up here: to join our community
- Join a Virtual Cafe community call: (https://zoom.us/j/3063210325) an online video gathering to meet other community members! Calls are hosted in English. First call coming up Tuesday, May 28 at 5 PM (GMT+2), Brussels time.
- Tell your story: What is a burning question that drives your work? How did you get started and what hurdles have you met along the way? Which doubts do you have about the work you are doing and the path forward? What kind of support would you like to offer others traveling a similar path?
We look forward to meeting and talking you!
The comment threads in the topics are “nested,” which means you should choose to reply to a specific comment in most cases (the ‘reply’ at the bottom right of the comment), rather than reply to the whole topic (the blue ‘reply’ button at the bottom of the topic).
To start a new topic, select the subcategory that is most appropriate from the dropdown menu below where you enter a title. For example, if it is your own story, then Tell Your Story is the correct location. But don’t start a new topic when it is better to continue a current conversation. Topic clutter can become a problem…
Detail about the project:
This conversation is part of a Horizon 2020 funded Coordination Action under the official name NGI Forward. The project focuses on building a coherent vision for the Next Generation Internet . The community research is hosted on Edgeryders, an online community of 5000 people in more than 80 countries who share experiences. By sharing experiences with one another we turn our collective knowledge into useful advice to make better decisions for ourselves and our families in the near future. As a consequence of getting to know people from around the world, we connect one another to important information, new ideas and new opportunities.
The research analysis considers content collected through http://edgeryders.eu, subject to online ethnographic analysis and semantic social network analysis.
Beyond the research project, we are a community: We use the tools offered by this platform to help connect people with mutual interests, concerns and complimentary skills. The online conversation runs in parallel with events all over Europe to meet and share constructive approaches. Anyone is welcome to participate from and beyond our focus countries (Czech Republic, Poland, Serbia).
The project is funded by the European Commission under grant agreement number 825652 from 2019-2021.
This conversation is hosted by Edgeryders, in partnership with: Aarhus University (Denmark), Universytet Warsawski (Poland), Resonance Design (Netherlandss), Nesta ( United Kingdom) and the City of Amsterdam.
