To mark the 30th anniversary of the birth of the web, the British Council presents a global season looking at the impact of this world-changing invention on every aspect of our lives. Anyone//Anywhere celebrates how the web has benefited society but also raises questions about its future. The season hopes to start a debate, to showcase exciting innovations that will change our lives even further, and to explore how we can ensure the web remains open and accessible to all.
