A community working together to build a next generation Internet that contributes to wellbeing of people and planet.

NGI Forward is the strategy and policy arm of the European Commission’s flagship Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative, which seeks to build a more democratic, inclusive, resilient, sustainable and trustworthy internet by 2030.

Our mission as a project is to develop an alternative, citizen-led model for the internet. We are doing this by setting out an ambitious vision for the future internet, convening a strong innovation ecosystem , and identifying the tools and policies that can make it a reality.

How it works


Inputs Platform Outputs Outcome
Committed People Conversation Articles Clusters of local actors that together try out new ideas to secure resilient livelihoods for their communities and themselves. Each cluster is composed of individuals, groups and organisations with deep ties to a place.
Interesting stories Sensemaking New Projects How is a cluster different from a network? In a network, participants look for how to make the most of what others are doing. In a cluster, participants are willing to re-orient their work, so as to better work with the other participants.
Experience-based knowledge New perspectives & ideas Unlikely Alliances If you are a construction company, you must not be lazy, and be open to using new technologies. If you are a social cooperative, you must look away from providing standardized services to customizing what you do in order to better valorize the capabilities of the people they are assisting. And so on.
