17 May - World Internet Day
Internet Day was first celebrated on October 25, 2005 at the initiative of the Internet Users Association. Shortly thereafter, the Information Society Summit held in Tunis in November 2005, decided to propose to the UN, at the request of the Internet Users Association, a World Internet Day to be celebrated globally around the world. The UN agreed to set May 17, the day dedicated to Telecommunications, with the addition of World Information Society Day, to promote the importance of ICTs and the various issues related to the Information Society raised at WSIS. In March 2006, the General Assembly adopted a resolution (A/RES/60/252) proclaiming May 17 as World Information Society Day every year.
Internet Day is celebrated in Spain and some Latin American countries (Mexico, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Uruguay, Ecuador, El Salvador, Bolivia, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic) on May 17 to commemorate World Internet Day.
