Sponsored by the Internet Society and the European Union, the Internet Fiesta is an annual international celebration designed to help increase access to the Internet and promote its use worldwide. Because the Internet has no frontiers, individuals and organizations from all continents participate.
The third annual Internet Fiesta will be held from 2 to 4 March 2001. During these three days, Internet services and solutions offered by citizens, companies, and governments will be featured on the Internet and in villages, streets, shops and cafés.
In the past, more than 1,000 events in over 35 countries have offered a wide range of innovative activities in developing countries. In the past Fiesta alone, activities included a "Webmaster Challenge" to create web sites for a number of English non-profit organizations; a joint training program on web development held by the University of Papua New Guinea and the National Association of NGOs; a film, image and sound gallery exploring creative image communication through the Internet in the Republic of Korea; and a Moroccan cyber-festival featuring performers, music, and free access to 200 PCs with Internet connections.
