In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
It helps me to understand Internet problems in a holistic approach and also make me part of a team with same goals: to keep internet free and democratic.
My academic concerns ( to a doctoral degree)is the link between exponencial video consumption and net neutrality maintenance.
