Web We Want Movement

“The Web We Want movement is calling on everyone, everywhere to play their part in shaping and enhancing the Web – not just for us, but for future generations too.

With our supporters and partners, we respond to threats to the Web with action – driving real change at a national and global level. Web We Want is campaigning for a global ‘Magna Carta for the Web’. We want citizens in every country to be protected by an online Bill of Rights in their nation too. We also support local activists – in the past six months we’ve partnered with over 30 organisations supporting local campaigns, research and projects reaching tens of thousands of people across the globe. From Cameroon to Colombia, examples of Web We Want activities include research to unmask new truths on government surveillance, workshops to protect the privacy of human rights activists and bloggers working online, and training to enhance the rights of women and girls on the Web. The movement was sparked by the World Wide Web Foundation, which was established by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee.”
