Web We Want is an extensive celebration of how the web has changed our lives. Explore some of the things that threaten the web as we know it and what solutions there might be during interactive talks, debates, workshops and seminars.
25 years ago, Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and gave it to the world. To mark the anniversary of this turning point for humanity, we are creating Web We Want, a major new three-part festival at Southbank Centre designed by you.
With our supporters and partners, we respond to threats to the Web with action - driving real change at a national and global level. Web We Want is campaigning for a global ‘Magna Carta for the Web’. We want citizens in every country to be protected by an online Bill of Rights in their nation too. We also support local activists - in the past six months we’ve partnered with over 30 organisations supporting local campaigns, research and projects reaching tens of thousands of people across the globe. From Cameroon to Colombia, examples of Web We Want activities include research to unmask new truths on government surveillance, workshops to protect the privacy of human rights activists and bloggers working online, and training to enhance the rights of women and girls on the Web. The movement was sparked by the World Wide Web Foundation, which was established by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee.
