The Digital Diplomacy Coalition (DDC) is a community and resource for diplomatic and international affairs communities. Since our founding, the Coalition has welcomed more than 4,000 diplomats, technologists, academics, communicators and innovators, along with the general public, to a diverse set of events in Washington, Ottawa, New York City and The Hague. Our first event was held in May 2012 in Washington, DC, in partnership with Google.

Founded by Scott Nolan Smith, Roos Kouwenhoven, Jed Shein and Floris Winters, we are an international, independent, volunteer-driven community.

Leadership

The Digital Diplomacy Coalition is led by a global board, providing vision and guidance, and setting the strategic goals to grow and foster a strong community.

Community & Events

First and foremost we are a community. We are united by our interest in the intersection of technology and diplomacy. Our community is both online and offline, coming together for in-person events and engaging through our digital channels.

The Coalition hosts numerous panels, workshops, socials and conferences throughout the year for diplomats, technologists, NGO practitioners, and policy makers to explore and highlight new ideas and best practices in digital diplomacy.

Our Partners

The Digital Diplomacy Coalition partners with other groups and organizations to further our mission of bringing together the diplomatic, international affairs, social impact and tech communities to leverage digital technologies for diplomacy and social good. We partner with groups for individual events, global projects and both short and long term initiatives.

Groups or organizations interested in partnering with or supporting the Coalition or our events should contact us at team@digidiplomats.com.
