A global plan of action to make our online world safe and empowering for everyone

Half of the world’s population still can’t get online. For the other half, the web’s benefits come with too many unacceptable risks: to our privacy, our democracy, our health and our security.

Now, for the first time ever, we have a global plan of action — the Contract for the Web — created by experts and citizens from across the world to halt the increasing misuse of the web and ensure it is protected as a force for good.

The Contract lays out a vision for the web we want and provides a roadmap for the policies and actions we need to get there. It sets concrete actions that governments, companies and individual web users can — and must — take to build a web that works for all humanity.

The best way to change the priorities and actions of those in power is to speak up and demand that change. So be part of the Contract for the Web and join the fight for the web we want.
