Manifesto: keep the internet open!


Access to a free digital network is essential. All data should be treated on the Internet equally and not discriminated or charged differentially by user, content or mode of communication. We sign the Youth4NetNeutrality manifesto to guarantee freedom of speech, safeguard equality and open internet principles.


For the first time in history, the youth of Europe is united from conservative to progressive, from left to right, from North to South and from East to West to stand up together for an issue that we deeply care about.

We stand up for the open internet. An internet without censorship. An internet where all data is treated equally. An internet without network discrimination. An internet without anti-competitive agreements.

As youth of Europe, we therefore call upon the Council of the European Union to preserve network neutrality in the Telecoms Single Market Regulation proposal as drafted by the European Parliament. We strongly urge the Council to define net neutrality clearly – and without any loopholes – in order to safeguard equality, facilitate fair competition and foster innovation.
