OneWebDay Promotes Political Participation Online
If there was one day to give your two cents about politics, whether your opinion was focused on the local or global political environment, today would be that day. One Web Day is like an Earth Day for the web, and aims to drive attention to a different internet value each year and promote healthy online participation worldwide.
OneWebDay is a global event held September 22 celebrating the Web and highlighting key issues about the future of the Internet, with a focus in its third year on online political participation. To celebrate and document the recent flourishing of online political participation in what has become a new “town square,” the DC OWD Planning Committee is creating an E-Democracy Time Capsule. We invite everyone, from all corners of the United States and the world, to help us make history by contributing text, images, sound, and video describing their favorite E-Democracy tools, writing letters to the future about their hopes for Web-powered politics, profiling of E-Democracy Heroes, and discussing Internet policy issues that are relevant to ensuring a Web future where the potential for online political participation can continue to flourish.
Be sure to check out the e-Democracy blog and read the submissions from people all around the world, and participate by submititng your own thoughts, great links related to e-Democracy and people who are leading in this field, or material related to policy-making. This is an invitation for you to share your most valuable e-Democracy resources for the rest of the world to enjoy.
