The Public Voice coalition will hold a privacy and consumer protection meeting in conjunction with the 35th International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners on Tuesday, 24 September 2013. The Public Voice is a group of civil society advocates united to promote the right to privacy and the incorporation of transparent, accountable, multistakeholder models for developing privacy-related policies for digital communications. Anyone can follow Tuesday's discussion and join online. This conference builds a bridge between the authorities whose mandate is to protect your privacy and your data, and you.

The event “Our Data, Our lives” will be livestreamed and tweeted. Anyone can follow the video, join the conversation via Twitter, or join the dialogue itself by signing in here.

Among the topics to be discussed are “The NSA Surveillance Program: What Is the Response from Civil Society?”, “Internet Intermediaries and Data Protections” and “EU-US Trade Discussion: Will the United States be Given a Free Pass on Privacy Again?”

All online participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the conversation.
