The theme for this year's global IGF is Internet United - The Internet
connecting all its users into one community, - our shared dreams, ideas,
needs and actions are what shapes the Internet of the future!
During the COVID-19 crisis, the Internet has organised our lives to an
extent that we could have never foreseen. This has only confirmed how
precious and valuable the Internet.
