June 17, Colombo: The 2017 edition of the Global Voices Summit will take place on December 2-3 in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The two-day seventh annual Global Voices Summit will hold public conversations and workshops with bloggers, activists, technologists, journalists, policymakers, development experts and others from around the world.

The summit will address the evolving state of citizen media, open Internet advocacy, open Internet culture, and grassroots activism from a Global South perspective.

Like all GV events, the 2017 Summit, will be a great opportunity for learning and sharing with a diverse and dynamic global community, the organizers say.

Supported by Groundviews, with sponsorship from the Mozilla Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation and others, the 2017 meeting will analyze the challenges to the open internet, looking at questions of open architecture and conditions for safe and free expression in an environment of increasing threats to both.

The summit will explore how key ideas in the architecture of the internet and of discourse can rewire the societies for resilience, reflection and deep research.

The launch of the Summit website and details on venues, registration, and programming will be announced in near future.
