The session will be divided into three different parts: 1) LACIGF and Youth LACIGF results presentation, 2) National IGFs results and discussion, and 3) share local or regional projects, discussion, and conclusions. This way, the time allocated for presentations and the time allocated for questions and discussion will be clearly defined. The session moderators will be responsible for guaranteeing the time defined in the agenda and organizing the participation of speakers and attendees in order to meet the objectives of the session and foster informed regional dialogue in a hybrid environment for everyone.


This edition of the IGF LAC Space will bring together organizations, stakeholders, and researchers from the Latin America and Caribbean Internet community to present and share projects and research undertaken over the past year. The aim of the LAC NRI Space is to have a room dedicated to IGF NRI's Coordinators from Latin America and the Caribbean, to present and share their reports, and articulate cooperation as a roadmap for the future of NRIs in the region. Firstly, a report from the YouthLACIGF and LACIGF meetings will be presented, with the key findings and possibilities for the future of IGF NRIs in GRULAC, and how these have contributed to connecting all people, Safeguarding Human Rights, Data Governance, Online Safety, and Addressing new technologies including AI. Secondly, some distinguished NRI members and coordinators will be dedicated to presenting and discussing the results from their national IGF or projects develop on it and papers that have addressed the use, development, evolution, and regulation of the Internet in Latin America the Caribbean. The session will thus seek to foster informed discussion and new opportunities for regional collaboration and create a robust NRIs network in the GRULAC region that can align and cooperate in a better and easy way with the general purpose of the global IGF and NRIs from other regions.

The online and onsite moderator will lead the conversation between participants with an equal time (if the session allows it) for both and have mainly into account the order of how participants requested the floor. Participants can make questions or participation in Spanish, English, and Portuguese. But as it is an international event English as lingua franca is encouraged. We guarantee the full participation of everyone in the session, despite the location, both moderators will be granted according to petition the floor to the people that want to be part of the discussion with questions and comments related to the presentation and topic directly or indirectly.
