Rapporteur: Ilona Stadnik, Geneva Internet Platform
- Universal Acceptance (UA) is crucial to make the Internet truly for everyone.
- UA is not limited to the deployment of internationalised domain names and e-mail addresses. More importantly, people must be able to use their computers, and create and share content in local languages.
- Thus, we need to work closely with major players like Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, and others to speed up the technical part of the UA and software development, as well as with governments that are interested in UA to preserve cultural identity and enhance online communication with their citizens.
- As a practical step, we can concentrate on increasing the visibility of local languages and encouraging local communities to use them in the creation of content on international platforms.
- Spreading cases of the successful local content projects is useful for a greater UA.
