Missions Publiques is an impact-driven consultancy (8 people) which works at improving Governance by including ordinary citizens in the process of policymaking. We work on the Future of Internet (http://wetheinternet.org/), autonomous mobility (http://themobilitydebate.net/) and Climate (COP26). We launch coalitions of global partners that design and roll-out massive deliberative face-to-face meetings in 120+ countries of world. We then push results in the policy making process to have impact and change the way governance works. We have a strong track record of global and international processes on climate, space, Biodiversity, Internet. Our partners include international organizations (UNESCO, UNFCCC, European Union, Council of Europe, European Space Agency, etc.), Governments (France, Germany, Swiss, Finnland, Morroko, Austria, Japan, etc.), Civil society organizations (Web Foundation, World Economic Forum, Internet Society, Wikimedia Foundation, etc.) and companies (Google, Mozilla, Airbus, Keolis, ENGIE, etc.). 

Internet represents a tremendous opportunity for humanity. Through the multiplication of networks, the possibility of being connected almost instantaneously to information and individuals, the Internet has revolutionized human relationships and society, to the point of being perceived as the space for the advent of a society of freedom and equality between all Human being.

However, as humanity benefits from these advances, drawbacks become more visible. Nearly 50% of the world's population is still not connected and even those who have access lack some basic skills to use it or benefit from it. The security of Internet users, addiction, data protection and misinformation are spreading and stakeholder engaged in decision making are struggling to take action as the topics are complex, their interest partly collide and the pressure put on them is growing.

The Global Citizens’ Dialogue on the Future of Internet aims at putting ordinary citizens in the decision-making loop to support decision makers to move forward and ensure that our common digital future will benefit all. Humanity deserves and asks for better governance. Both citizens and decisions makers are ready. By using such new forms of political non-partisan dialogue, decisions become more in tune with the complexity of our age, more legitimate and more sustainable. Decisions makers gain in legitimacy, insights and transparency. Citizens enter the realm of complexity of global decision making and are included in policy making. Both are strengthened by this interaction.
