The Internet Society is now inviting applications for the 2016 Youth at IGF
A bit of background: Early in 2015 the Brazilian Internet Steering
Committee (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
specifically. Both CGI.br and Internet Society (ISOC) 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.
This time, the Internet Society and the Brazilian Internet Steering
Committee, along with local partners, NIC México and the Government of
