Youth IGF – Overview: www.2014.rigf.asia/yigf/
With a dedication to raise the awareness of Youth on Internet governance and encourage the young generation to participate in the policy discussion, a group of NetMission Ambassadors (http://www.netmission.asia) has initiated the Youth Internet Governance Forum (YIGF) in 2010 in parallel with the APrIGF.
Inspired by United Nation’s Internet Governance Forum, the Youth IGF takes the same multi-stakeholders’ approach as the global IGF. One of the core features of the Youth IGF is that the facilitators are all youth themselves i.e. NetMission Ambassadors which signifies the empowerment of youth as well as the peer-to-peer impact.
The Youth IGF Camp is a 3-day-2-night camp mirroring the UNIGF for youth to discuss various Internet Governance issues. It consists of the below elements:
• Stakeholder Group – participants will be divided and role-play as different stakeholders (example: Govt. bodies/ NGOs/ Students/ Business Organizations etc.)
