NCC Leads Universal Acceptance Day Workshop to Promote Multilingualism Online



The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is set to spearhead a transformative workshop in collaboration with ICANN, the African Regional At-Large Organization (AFRALO), and Green ICTi, aimed at advancing Universal Acceptance (UA) adoption and supporting multilingualism on the internet.

Scheduled to coincide with the 2024 UA Day, the workshop will be held virtually on May 30, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. This pioneering event seeks to break down barriers to online inclusion by promoting the universal acceptance of diverse languages and character lengths on the internet.

Universal Acceptance ensures that all domain names and email addresses are treated equally and function seamlessly across different applications and platforms, regardless of their language or script. By fostering UA adoption, the NCC, alongside its esteemed partners, aims to create an internet ecosystem where linguistic diversity is celebrated, and digital opportunities are accessible to all.

Participants are invited to register and join the NCC, ICANN, AFRALO, and Green ICTi in this groundbreaking initiative. Through collaborative efforts, the workshop aims to unlock the full potential of UA adoption, paving the way for an internet where language and character length are no longer barriers to inclusion.

The workshop will feature insightful discussions, informative presentations, and practical demonstrations, providing participants with valuable insights into the importance of UA adoption and its impact on digital accessibility and innovation. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with experts in the field, exchange ideas, and explore strategies for promoting UA adoption in their respective communities and organizations.

As the digital landscape continues to evolve, initiatives such as the UA Day workshop play a crucial role in shaping a more inclusive and accessible internet for all. By embracing linguistic diversity and promoting UA adoption, the NCC and its partners are championing a future where every individual can fully participate in the digital economy and society.

Join the NCC, ICANN, AFRALO, and Green ICTi in their commitment to promoting Universal Acceptance adoption and unlocking the true potential of a multilingual internet. Together, let us build a more inclusive digital future for generations to come.
