  10. Why Engage in the Process: The GDC is an opportunity for government & civil society and multi-stakeholder to contribute to establishing agreed principles for digital governance that support human rights, social justice and sustainable development and that can form the basis of a longer-term framework for accountable and inclusive internet governance – and broader digital governance. ` The GDC is also an opportunity to reinterpret the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) vision to respond to the constantly changing digital society that we live in today. It could also play a key role in ensuring that the lessons learned from years of multistakeholder cooperation feed into future processes of internet policy, internet governance and global digital cooperation and in setting parameters for safeguarding multistakeholderism, transparency, inclusivity, dialogue and accountability. Stakeholders, including civil society groups and individuals, can develop inputs based on a long-term vision for what we want the internet to be, and what we do not want it to be – and more broadly, for digitalisation and its relationship to sustainable development and environmental sustainability. We can work hard to see priorities reflected in the final product by consulting widely, and deeply, and collaborating extensively, including reaching out to other stakeholder groups. The GDC has the potential to frame digital debate at the global level in upcoming years, so it is urgent that the public has a seat at the table and proposes carefully tailored and targeted recommendations in relation to key policy themes.
