The first digital rights NGO was established in Greece
The first Non-Governmental Organization in Greece with the scope of protecting human rights in the digital age, Homo Digitalis, was established. Co-founders to it are six young lawyers with a broad expertise and passion for offering to society.
The aim of Homo Digitalis is to inform the Greek citizens on the right use of the Internet, the protection of their fundamental rights, but also to support them in cases of violations. Through its actions, Homo Digitalis hopes to challenge the citizen’s conscience regarding their digital rights and become a benchmark organization for the protection of digital rights in Greece.
Two of the first actions of Homo Digitalis in this context are:
– the submission of its Report on the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the “Right to Privacy in the Digital Age”
– an open letter to the Greek Parliament, suggesting an amendment to the draft law on the protection of personal data, implementing EU Regulation 2016/679 and transposing EU Directive 2016/680.
