Cities For Digital Rights
The internet has become inseparable from our daily lives. Yet, every day, there are new cases of digital rights abuse, misuse and misinformation and concentration of power around the world. The Cities Coalition for Digital Rights is committed to eliminating impediments to harnessing technological opportunities providing trustworthy and secure digital services and infrastructures that support communities.
Human rights principles such as privacy, freedom of expression, and democracy must be incorporated by design into digital platforms starting with locally-controlled digital infrastructures and services. The coalition supported by the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-Habitat) aims to share and learn from each other’s challenges and successes, and coordinate common initiatives and actions.
