World Consumer Rights Day 2024

Fair and Responsible Artificial Intelligence for Consumers was the theme of Consumers International’s campaign for World Consumer Rights Day 2024, celebrated each year on 15 March. To mark the occasion, ANEC hosted a training on ‘Influencing AI standards that deliver for civil society – the international approach’.

The training took place online on Tuesday 12 March and was aimed at all those working in consumer or wider civil society organizations who want to understand the role of international and European standards and how best to ensure they deliver good outcomes.


The European AI and Society Fund (EAISF) kindly supported ANEC in organizing the well-attended event, presented by two well-known experts and consumer champions, Liz Coll and Julie Hunter. Participants learned about the impact of AI on consumers, citizens and society. They could also learn more about international AI standards and how they are linked to EU activity. The training closed with a review of the means to influence AI standards and overcome barriers to involvement in standards development.
