The Internet has a lot of positives and it can also have a lot of negatives and now the inventor or the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee has launched Contract for the web to make the Internet a better place.
Contract for the web is backed by more than 150 companies which include the likes of Microsoft, Google, Facebook, the EFF and many more.
The Web was designed to bring people together and make knowledge freely available. It has changed the world for good and improved the lives of billions. Yet, many people are still unable to access its benefits and, for others, the Web comes with too many unacceptable costs.
Everyone has a role to play in safeguarding the future of the Web. The Contract for the Web was created by representatives from over 80 organizations, representing governments, companies and civil society, and sets out commitments to guide digital policy agendas. To achieve the Contract’s goals, governments, companies, civil society and individuals must commit to sustained policy development, advocacy, and implementation of the Contract text.
