What Now? How Do We React to the Challenges?


If media makers, executives, and policymakers discuss media and network policies, market trends, and media-culture developments for two days, what will be the result? Different perspectives, many challenges, and still more opinions. This is true too of the political debates from which regulators derive their specific measures. Here, representatives of the various groups will together discuss these topics and try to draw appropriate conclusions: What can anyone do to guarantee users an open, diverse, safe, and high-quality future Internet? How can audiovisual media content – even if offered by smaller providers – be found? How does regulation that fits our contemporary era look? And above all, how can we begin to overcome these challenges even in the course of our daily work?
