Session teaser
For over a year, the world turned to digital completely. The IGF, as well, was hosted completely online for the very first time in its history. Many lessons are learned and being applied to this year’s IGF. Join us for this interactive session to learn what is new and to help us improve further IGF 2021.

Session description
The IGF 2021 process includes an interactive community-centred preparatory phase and the 16th annual meeting to be hosted by the Government of Poland in Katowice from 6 to 10 December. The entire process will be hosted in a hybrid format, to ensure as-equal-as-possible participation of online and onsite participants. 

Even though the IGF was always hosted in a format that aimed to accommodate online participation, this year's process will invest even more effort into this goal. The COVID-19 pandemic and related travel restrictions are not the only factors that prompted the IGF to evolve towards a hybrid nature. Its mandate, continuous advice from the community, as well as the Roadmap for Digital Cooperation all added to the momentum for concrete action in improving the participation conditions. 

The IGF is more out there, closer to people. This is why the intersessional working modalities are also advancing and many capacity development activities are being introduced. We hope that the IGF 2021 process will engage many historically unrepresented stakeholders who will help us to ensure Internet governance processes are present in all corners of the world.

This session will allow participants to learn more about IGF innovations and how to effectively engage in the IGF 2021 processes.

Webinar: preparing for IGF 2021 Youth Summit

The IGF 2021 Youth Summit in Katowice is in December and preparations are starting early. Are you a young person interested in Internet governance and you wonder how you can get involved? Or maybe you still don’t know much about that topic, but you feel like you want to find out more? If the answer is “Yes!” we would like to warmly invite you to join the very first webinar of the preparation cycle on the way to the IGF 2021 Youth Summit in Katowice!
The webinar will be hosted on 22 April at 12:00 UTC.

The first topic we are going to explore together is: How to change the world from home? It's been over a year since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, and it has never been so urgent to answer this question. As the whole world decided to go online, so should the discussion about the impact of the remote lifestyle on the environment. 

As the young generation, we find it more than necessary to move the discussion on digital sustainability further on. Due to the special matter of this topic, it is important to broaden the scope of the discussion on how to make digitalization greener and more sustainable.

That is why the theme of the webinar is “3xG” that stands for:

  • Green Internet
  • Green Tech
  • Green Generation

If you want to find out: 

  • How you can get involved in the preparations for the Youth Summit and the Youth Summit in Katowice itself?
  • What you can do to help the environment?
  • Which experts you will have an opportunity to meet at the webinar?
