Baltic Information Society Analysis Centre has joined Web We Want – a global initiative that promotes a free and open Web.
For the first time since Web We Want establishment in 2013, the initiative has opened its membership to new applicants who have demonstrated a proactive commitment to the Web’s openness. As a result, Web We Want’s founding committee of 20 digital and human rights groups has expanded to a coalition that includes more than 100 selected organisations representing 50 countries across every region of the world.
BISAC is the coalition’s only organisation representing Northern Europe. The Web We Want membership also marks the beginning of a new stage in the organisation’s development – it supports and strengthens BISAC’s international role both regionally and globally.
BISAC’s Executive Director Aleksandras Jocius said, “Web We Want provides an array of tools and opportunities to launch new projects and make an international impact. It also marks a new step for BISAC – we are accepted internationally as shapers of the free and open Web. Thus, we cannot wait to provide our input to this exciting initiative”. Read More
