• Invitation for ISOC Ambassadors to the Internet Governance Forum

    by  • July 16, 2015 • Events, News, Policy

    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
    Pessoa, Brazil.

    individuals in your network that have a keen interest in the Internet
    governance and policy activities of the IGF.
