During the ICANN70 Virtual Community Forum (22-25 March) and Prep Week (8-11 March), two Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG) sessions highlighted the progress being made towards achieving the Universal Acceptance (UA) of all valid domain names and email addresses in any length, language, or script. In total, 200-plus session participants joined from around the world to discuss UA activities and global advancement to date. In addition, UA continued to be a popular topic of conversation throughout ICANN70 including in At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC), Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO), Latin American and Caribbean (LAC), and Tech Day sessions.
For those who were unable to attend, below are key insights from each UASG-led session with links to presentation materials and recordings.
