The Internet Society is inviting applications for its latest Internet
Society Ambassadors to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). IGF
Ambassadors will gain valuable insight and experience through their
exposure to a range of stakeholders and discussions from numerous
disciplines across the Internet ecosystem and benefit from their
immersion into the IGF week of activities.
The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) serves to bring people together from
various stakeholder groups as equals, in discussions on public policy
issues relating to the Internet. While there is no negotiated outcome,
the IGF informs and inspires those with policy-making power in both the
public and private sectors. At their annual meeting delegates discuss,
exchange information and share good practices with each other. The IGF
facilitates a common understanding of how to maximize Internet
opportunities and address risks and challenges that arise.
Ambassadorships will be awarded through a competitive application
process. The Internet Society is currently accepting applications for
the 10th Annual Internet Governance Forum in Joo Pessoa, Brazil:
* 10th Annual Internet Governance Forum, November 9-13, 2015, Joo
Applications will close on 2 August, 2015.
I encourage you to apply or pass this information about the programme to
individuals in your network that have a keen interest in the Internet
governance and policy activities of the IGF.
