Over the past decade, Brazil has pioneered a digital policymaking approach that many countries have looked to as a model for promoting innovation and openness online. During the administration of Ignacio “Lula” da Silva, Minister of Culture and acclaimed musician Gilberto Gil developed a policy agenda that focused on increasing Internet access and digital education for all Brazilians. Advocates are urging Brazil’s Congress to vote in favor of the Marco Civil, the passage of which would make Brazil a global and regional leader for progressive Internet policy and a model that many countries may look to as they develop their digital agendas.
I sure hope this bill will pass!
Meet me in Sao Paulo Nov 5: Markets of the Future: From Ego to Eco. On Nov. 5 at the Museum of Image and Sound - MIS in São Paulo, Gerd Leonhard presents a strategic vision on the future of global business focus eyes on innovation and sustainability. Leonhard stresses the urgency of shifting the paradigm of “ego” to “eco”.
