WEBCAST WED: 2021 Indigenous Connectivity Summit Policy Recommendations Launch Webinar

livestreamOn Wednesday December 1 2021 at 14:00 EST (19:00 UTC) the Internet Society will host a webinar to formally release the 2021 Indigenous Connectivity Summit (ICS) Policy Recommendations. This release event will provide an overview of the Policy Recommendations and the impact that they can have on the state of connectivity in Indigenous communities in the US and Canada. The conversation will be led by members of the ICS community.

The Recommendations were the culmination of six weeks of trainings on the role of policy and advocacy in the current connectivity environment. Participants — which included over 80 individuals from the US and Canada, most of whom are members of Indigenous communities —used the dialogue over these trainings to collaboratively develop a set of recommendations that aim to support Indigenous Communities in providing their own connectivity solutions. On the final day of the 2021 ICS, participants reviewed, contributed to, and ultimately adopted these recommendations as an official output of the summit. The Policy Recommendations build on previous documents in 2019 and 2020.
