About Best Bits

Best Bits is an inclusive network of key civil society organisations from across the world, who come together to highlight their various initiatives, and foster mutual learning and broader engagement. The network is called “Best Bits” because it does not aim to present a single solution for ratification by the assembled groups, but rather to offer an open space where each group can present and advocate for the initiatives that they believe offer the best positive agenda for advancing broadly shared civil society interests in Internet governance.

  • To broaden and diversify participation in the initiatives that participants are undertaking individually or in smaller networks (in particular dissolving North-South divides), by allowing participants to report on those initiatives to their peers and thereby discover opportunities for collaboration or even merger of similar initiatives.
  • To amplify the voice of civil society at upcoming Internet governance events, by sharing knowledge and empowering participants to effectively represent the public interest.
  • To produce tangible shared outputs addressing pressing current issues that can be used in advocacy at such upcoming Internet governance events.
  • To raise the level of shared understanding about related groups, initiatives and issues and their political contexts, and thereby increase the quality of advocacy work conducted by individual groups and networks on Internet governance issues, and reduce duplication.
