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 [2], 24 September 2013. The Public Voice is a group of civil society advocates united to promote [3] 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” [4] will be livestreamed and tweeted. Anyone can follow the video, join the conversation via Twitter [5], or join the dialogue itself by signing in here [4].

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.
