About Internet Society Zimbabwe
The internet is for everyone
How We Work
In the Internet’s short history, we have already witnessed attempts to shut down or limit discussions on key issues such as network neutrality, or to reframe the implications of policies, such as those that relate to cybersecurity. What we learn repeatedly is that the best and most lasting solutions are ones that we arrive at through cooperation and mutual respect, that are rooted in principle, and that open the door to innovation.
The Internet Society supports and promotes the development of the Internet as a global technical infrastructure, a resource to enrich people’s lives, and a force for good in society.
Our work aligns with our goals for the Internet to be open, globally-connected, secure, and trustworthy. We seek collaboration with all who share these goals.
Together, we focus on:
- Building and supporting the communities that make the Internet work;
- Advancing the development and application of Internet infrastructure, technologies, and open standards; and
- Advocating for policy that is consistent with our view of the Internet
