What is UA Day?
UA Day is an annual event organized by the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG) to promote Universal Acceptance (UA) of the Internet. UA is the technical requirement that ensures all domain names and email addresses can be used by all Internet-enabled applications, devices, and systems.
Why is UA Day Important?
UA is essential for ensuring that the Internet is accessible to everyone, regardless of their language or script. In a world with over 4,000 languages and scripts, UA is crucial for bridging the digital divide and promoting a more inclusive and multilingual Internet.
What is ISOC-NG Doing for UA Day?
ISOC-NG is committed to raising awareness of UA and its importance for a more inclusive and multilingual Internet. As part of our UA Day celebrations, we will be hosting a series of events, including:
Half-Day UA Day Awareness Event

● Promotional Video
