YCIG: Action Plan


The YCIG aims to empower youth who want to actively participate in the IGF’s intersessional activities and initiatives, such as other Dynamic Coalitions, and by supporting the IGF and its Secretariat in getting more young people involved on equal footing with other stakeholders in Internet governance processes. It is imperative that youth be included in such processes and be able to share ideas and best practices from local and regional perspectives with the global Internet governance community. Our goal is to build a robust and sustainable youth coalition on Internet governance by reaching out to youth as well as youth-led organizations and other relevant stakeholders interested in joining and contributing to the IGF community.

The YCIG is the natural space for youth interested in Internet governance-related issues and the IGF as a platform for engaging with all stakeholders on equal footing to amplify youth voices. The YCIG is a space open for all youth and other relevant stakeholders, regardless of social status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, geographic location, or religion (or lack thereof).
