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.

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