Description

The Latin America and Caribbean regional preparatory meeting for the Internet Governance Forum (LACIGF) is the opportunity for voices across the continent to come together to discuss how the Internet works. With data protection, the impact of algorithms, and the persistent digital divide all high on the agenda, there is much to talk about. 

Libraries, as trusted spaces with a long record of reflection on the power of information, have a major role to play. Silvia Lacorazza (President of ABGRA) and Andrés Reinoso (New Professionals Special Interest Group) will represent IFLA, underlining how libraries help bring people online, give them confidence and skills, and promote their rights.
