Public consultations are an opportunity to influence the future legislation at an early stage, in the European Union and beyond. They are your opportunity to help to shape a brighter future for digital rights, such as your right to an open internet, a private life, and data protection, or your freedom of opinion and expression.

Below you can find a list of public consultations we find important for digital rights. We will update the list on an ongoing basis, adding our responses and other information that can help you get engaged.
