Nathaniel James, OneWebDay
OneWebDay is a global event celebrated every September 22 since 2006. It provides an opportunity for communities to celebrate the power of the Web for positive change, to take action to protect what they value most about it, and to educate the public and policy-makers on the social, economic, and political impact of the Web.
This year's theme -- One Web. For All. -- is all about digital inclusion, digital literacy, and working to close the many digital divides we face in our global society. Access to a fast, affordable, and open Internet is essential for every child in school, every entrepreneur with a new idea, and anyone who wants full access to government and the democratic process.
