The context

In 2014, the European Parliament voted in favor of clear rules for net neutrality. A year later, a legal document has been drafted that leaves room for interpretations that would undermine net neutrality. A plenary vote on 28 October, 2015 will be the final chance to repair this damage. European citizens have been petitioning their Members of Parliament to insist on strong net neutrality protections. SaveTheInternet.EU is a coalition of NGOs from across Europe who joined forces to encourage action.

The project

The aim of this project, proposed by SaveTheInternet.EU during our 2015-2016 grant cycle, is to fight for European Union-wide protection of net neutrality and set a global standard for an open Internet by: 

  • Connecting net neutrality activists with the technical community.
  • Coordinating European civil society groups with net neutrality working groups at the national level.
  • Organize meetings with Members of the European Parliament, Council and Permanent Representatives.
  • Campaigning online with, publishing articles and educational material.
