Notes from Internet Governance Forum 2013 #igf2013 ICANN

High Level Leaders Meeting

Comment by Fadi Chehade, President and CEO of ICANN

There is no cyber space, there is just one place we live in. The world we live in is the cyber world as well- there is no difference in online and offline world. It is not virtual world.

Internet brings forth various values such as economic value, freedom of expression, and peace - Internet brings people together. Internet is a "good force" and we need a safe guard for it.

We recently saw public mistrust towards the Internet. Public trust for internet is important, and doubt will take away important things. We need to safeguard trust.

We are all public trustees- governence people, technical organizations, civil society are all in civil service and equal stuarts to secure those safeguards.

We need to start finding a new way to keep the Internet open, transparent and equal- so that everyone has equal voice.

"Public trust of the Internet" should be the one goal we have.

We should be able to address all points of view, keep equality and cooperation.

"Multi-stakeholder" approach does not break existing approaches- it is going to enhance and support the existing approaches.
