The Internet Is for Everyone
This vision drives everything we do.
It is where we collaborate and innovate for a better world. Where we share our hopes and dreams and strengthen our bonds. It is where we work, learn, and make progress.
We are a global nonprofit organization empowering people to keep the Internet a force for good: open, globally connected, secure, and trustworthy.
We are the Internet Society.
People are at the heart of our mission.
This value forms the pillars of our work.
Half the world lacks Internet access.
Because everyone should have access to this life-changing resource, we are passionate about closing the digital divide.
The other half is connected.
We advocate across the globe for a trusted Internet, bridging the gap between policymakers and the technical community.
They are an unstoppable force and they motivate us in all we do.
These are the inspiring people who make up the Internet Society.
Be a part of the movement.
