During the Internet Governance Forum 2017, a number of key messages (the so-called “ Geneva Messages ”) were elaborated to highlight the outcomes of the Summit and to pave the way for the following IGFs. They were based on the conclusions of each of the main sessions and of the two
high-level thematic sessions. Following the spirit of the Geneva Messages, the following Paris Messages are presented as non-binding principles. They synthesize the key outcomes of the two high level thematic sessions (“The new challenges of the Internet governance” and “Strengthening the Internet governance and the IGF”), the 8 main sessions and the 71 workshops planned for IGF 2018. The IGF 2018 Paris Messages were elaborated through a bottom-up approach with the participation of more than a hundred volunteer students, the French civil society and the French technical community, represented by Renaissance Numérique, AFNIC, the French Digital Council (CNNum) and Internet Society France (ISOC France).
Digital is a set of sciences and technologies, its actors and practices have radically changed how our democracies, societies and economies work.
Digital transformation represents a vector of progress for humanity and must remain at the service of humankind. Consequently, digital transformations must serve the People, protect their fundamental human rights, ensure social progress, support freedom, equality, solidarity and ensure the preservation of the environment.
Internet is a common good for every citizen around the world . Therefore, the principles of a neutral, open and non-centralized Internet must guide digital transformation.
