Under the motto ‘Internet, a lever for digital transformation and resilience,’ institutions across the world related to connectivity on the web, schools, companies and thousands of users are participating in the activities scheduled for this day.

Every May 17, since 2006, the date, whose genesis is in Spain, at the initiative of the Spanish Association of Internet Users, is officially commemorated throughout the planet.

Monday’s virtual meeting, mainly organized by that Spanish association, was preceded by a week dedicated to cyberspace with proposals such as a photography contest with the theme ‘Technology in our daily life.’

In 2006, the World Summit on the Information Society, at the request of the Spanish Association of Internet Users, agreed to request the United Nations General Assembly to declare an International Internet Day to celebrate it all over the planet.

The United Nations set May 17, dedicated to Telecommunications, adding World Information Society Day, to promote the importance of Information and Communication Technologies.
