Subject: Civil Society Youth speaker for the IGF2018 closing

Dear CS MAG members,

Could I kindly ask you to suggest a Civil Society Youth speaker for the
closing ceremony (not a professional youth person).

I would be grateful if you could send me a name by Monday Evening.

Best regards



My suggestion

"I'd like to suggest 1 name for the opening as time is upon us

Viviane Vinagre

vivianegvinagre at gmail.com

A law student in her 20s who attended IGF2015 in her city, João
Pessoa, Paraíba, Brazil. Ever since then Viviane has engaged with the
community and changed her life altogether. She has participated in the
Brazil IGF and in parallel events, involved herself in internet policy
issues relative to her region such as the dot-Amazon debate, and just
last year she did an internship in Canada researching gender and
internet governance. Got to be a speaker of her own session just like
the PM of Canada and other high-level panelists at the International
Gender Forum.

She is part of Youth IGF Brazil, YCIG, LACNIC/LACNOG participant, and
follows the activities of all the 5 groups of Civil Society part ot
the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG - Bestbits, IGC, APC, NCSG,
JustNet Coalition). She is also an enrolled member of the majority of
these groups.

I believe it is important to keep alive the spirit of engaging with
the IGF and how that can be a life-changer.

I also think it would be nice to involve CSCG on choosing the closing
speaker, if no objection by MAG members from CS"
