*2017 Youth at IGF programme*
This time, the Youth at IGF programme supports a crucial leadership
development opportunity for young adults aged 18-25 from all around the
world, with an emphasis on youth from Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the
The programme will include:
- 4-week *Online Training* on topics including, Internet Governance;
Actors and Stakeholder Groups; Infrastructure, Standards and Protocols; and
Policy Principles. Participants will be grouped into classes, each with a
dedicated expert moderator to facilitate the learning process. Classes will
be delivered in English, French and Spanish.
- *Travel Fellowships* for the best participants of the online course to
the Internet Governance Forum 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland, 18-21 December
- *Webinar Discussion Series* led by global Internet Governance experts
to deepen the youths’ knowledge and to prepare them for the IGF event.
- *Onsite Collaborative Leadership Exchange* in partnership with
Internet Society Ambassadors to IGF, Youth Fellows from other programs, and
IGF attendees more generally.
Early in 2015, the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee (CGI.br
<http://cgi.br/>) identified as a desired outcome of the Internet
Governance Forum (IGF) an increase in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)
youth participation in the Internet governance processes and the meeting
Both CGI.br <http://cgi.br/> and Internet Society have extensive experience
in providing capacity building on Internet governance through online
courses and fellowships to previous IGFs. Therefore, the two organizations
combined efforts to create the LAC Youth at IGF program to empower the next
generation of leaders and increase the participation of young voices (age
18-25) from LAC in the debates about Internet Governance.
Since then, and together with our partners – NIC.MX, the Government of
Mexico, Microsoft and Verizon – we have brought more than 130 youth from
all around the world to IGF 2015 and 2016 under the Youth at IGF programme, as
part of our commitment to ensure the next generation of Internet leaders
are primed to advance an Internet of opportunity for all.
As a result of these efforts, many of these young people are now
contributing to the Youth SIG and to regional meetings, such as the African
Internet Summit, EuroDIG, and others.
Best of luck;
Policy Outreach Fellow
