We will be hosting online participation, and specifically the hubs structure. You can follow the discussions from our IGF HUB in Mombasa, Kenya from Nov 28 – Dec 02, 2022!
DISCLAIMER: Remote Hubs are the responsibility of the local organizers and should be held in accordance to the local rules, regulations and advice of the local health authorities with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’re excited to share that Community Week 2022 will take place on 6-7 September. It will bring together an entire community of Internet heroes worldwide. Internet Society members—individuals, organizations, chapters, special interest groups, and standing groups—will celebrate our collective work to build and protect the Internet.
This year, the main focus of International E-Waste Day will be those small electrical devices that we no longer use but keep in drawers and cupboards or often toss in the general waste bin.
Small, end of life electrical and electronic appliances present a significant challenge. UN estimated that in 2019, over 22 million tonnes of small e-waste were produced worldwide. This is 40% of the 57 million tonnes of all e-waste arising globally. If the quantity of these small items keeps on increasing at the same rate as total e-waste (around 3% per annum), it will reach 29 million tonnes by 2030.
