Internet Creator Calls to Make It Safe
According to the plan, national governments and companies should make sure that everyone has access to the Internet and that everyone respects the confidentiality of personal data.

The document has already been approved by more than 150 organizations, including IT giants Google and Facebook, as well as thousands of people around the world and the governments of France, Germany and Ghana.
