On the 22nd of Dec. NRS held its event at the NOOM Hotel in Niamey.
The event provided an opportunity for resource members to appreciate the strides that have been made since the invention of the internet till now, and what the future holds for it.
Our discussion focused on internet governance (the development and application of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making procedures, and programs that shape the evolution of the internet.) which is one that keeps changing globally for the betterment of the internet.
The internet belongs to everyone and since its inception in 1979 by DARPA; the internet has fostered a community of like-minded netizens hungry for information and seeking connectivity above all. Unfortunately, it has also wrought greed and stakeholders who want nothing but power and control. Internet governance was created to combat this and while there’s still a long way to go in eliminating the antagonists, we are certainly headed in the right direction. Look out for more of our better training events in different countries.
