New Zealand – Since 2010 NetHui brings everybody and anybody that wants to talk about the Internet together. It is not a conference and speakers won’t talk at you all day. NetHui is a community event – made for the community, by the community. Hashtag:
NetHui is New Zealand’s multi-stakeholder event on Internet governance and policy issues.
Participation and collaboration are at the heart of NetHui. The programme is not decided by InternetNZ – it’s designed by the community. NetHui is about issues that actually matter to the community.
Code of Conduct = Kaupapa
NetHui is a community event about the Internet, where everyone’s opinions and ideas are equally valued. The event is open to all people regardless of age, background, gender or ethnicity.
A respectful, open attitude towards others is expected from all participants, speakers, exhibitors and volunteers. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated and may result in your removal from the event.
The four pillars
- Respect people.
- Enable participation.
- Stay on topic.
- Keep it safe.
Code of conduct
NetHui is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, age or religion.
We do not tolerate harassment of NetHui participants in any form.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour will be expected to comply immediately. NetHui participants who break these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from NetHui at the discretion of the organisers.
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, age, religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention.
New Zealand takes the gold when it comes to live video streaming, making conferences accessible to the world. Our current choice of a benchmark event is New Zealand’s NetHui which since 2010 has made the most of face-to-face networking and online interaction.
