The launch of the Contract for the Web is milestone to celebrate — but it is just the beginning of fighting for the web we want. Tim Berners-Lee has called for governments, companies and citizens across the world to take action to protect the web as a force for good and it’s happening.
In the new year we’ll be working hard to win even more backing for the Contract among companies, civic groups and particularly governments.
To further develop the commitments outlined in the Contract, we will once again convene experts to craft specific, evidence-based solutions to the problems facing the web and champion civil society organisations undertaking important work on specific issues.
The Contract is a powerful tool to hold organisations accountable for their decisions and actions. To keep their status as backers of the Contract, endorsers must demonstrate action on their commitments and stay actively involved in developing concrete solutions.
We’ll be announcing next steps on the accountability framework and measuring endorsers’ implementation of the Contract in the new year.
We all have a part to play to ensure the Contract for the Web drives real change. Join us to build a web that works for all humanity by backing the Contract. Together, we can make the web we want a reality.
