EURid-Coordinated Dynamic Coalition on Data and Trust Officially Launched
EURid today announces the launch of a new Dynamic Coalition on Data and Trust (DC-DT) for the 2020 Internet Governance Forum.
In recent years, disinformation scandals and increasing levels of consolidation in technology markets have diminished the confidence of regulators and members of the public in the effectiveness of industry self-regulation. The Dynamic Coalition will deepen understanding of these issues and build consensus among interested stakeholders.
The new group is a partnership with multiple stakeholders across the private, public and civil society sectors including European Commission, Europol and the Computational Propaganda Unit at Oxford University’s Internet Institute and members of the International Trade Mark Association.
The key aims and activities of the Coalition will include:
1. Exploring linkages between data and trust to inform policy discussions with a solid evidence base and showcase relevant research which explores linkages between data, information and trust.
2. Sharing good practices to highlight voluntary industry initiatives aimed at raising quality of data and enhancing trust.
The Coalition is open to all interested stakeholders, and will actively seek to engage under-represented perspectives, particularly youth and those from developing countries, and will ensure that statements and outputs reflect minority or dissenting viewpoints.
“Our objective is to encourage proactive interventions and effective industry self-regulation to raise standards of data quality, combat poor data and disinformation, and raise levels of public trust in the Internet.” - Giovanni Seppia, EURid External Relations Manager.
“The initial focus of the Dynamic Coalition on Data and Trust will be to explore industry responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, and understand the broad ecosystem of actors whose services are used and abused by websites that systematically publish false information relating to the pandemic” – Emily Taylor, Oxford Information Labs CEO.
The inaugural meeting of the Dynamic Coalition will be held during IGF 2020 pre-events on Thursday, 5 November at 10:50-12:20 UTC.
EURid is the not-for-profit organisation that operates the .eu, .ею and .ευ top-level domains, following a tender process and appointment by the European Commission. As part of its ongoing commitment to data security, EURid has been certified for the ISO27001 security standard since 2013. EURid is also registered by the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme EMAS.

Global Coalition Unites to Tackle the Urban Water Crisis and Address Climate Change Through Public-Private Collaboration27.10.2020 12:00:00 CET | Press release
Launched today, the 50L Home Coalition (Coalition) is a global action-oriented platform addressing two of the world’s most pressing challenges: water security and climate change. This global collaboration aims to re-invent the future of water and change the narrative on domestic water consumption by making a water-efficient lifestyle – 50 Liters (L) of daily water use per person – an irresistible aspiration for all. The world is in the midst of an urban water crisis, and the pressures on our limited resources are only accelerating. Seventy percent of the world’s 20 megacities are already experiencing water scarcity or drought conditions, disrupting business, threatening health and exacerbating inequalities. The average home in the developed world is highly inefficient, and average per capita household water use is as high as 500L per day. Because an estimated 16% of total energy use in the home is related to water, this disproportionate domestic water consumption is also contributing t
