July 26th, San José, Costa Rica

What is Internet Governance?

It is the development and application by governments, the private sector and civil society, in their respective roles, of shared principles, norms, rules, decision-making processes and programs that shape the evolution and use of the Internet.

What is the Youth @ LACIGF?

The YouthLACIGF is an initiative born from the growing community of Latin American youth interested in issues related to the Internet. Given the active role that the youth have started taking, this new space is created with multi-sectoral characteristics, as a forum for debate of new ideas and perspectives to encourage the creation of lines of discussion that will be taken to other forums.


The event will be held on Tuesday, July 26 and will begin at 8:00 am and end at 6:00 p.m.
For the development of the agenda, large topics will be proposed, which will include sub-themes raised by participants of the event.
The large themes are:

  • Infrastructure and Access
  • Internet and Human Rights
  • Cyber Security and Surveillance
  • Youth and Governance: What future do we want?

Also among those registered for the event, a small survey will be conducted to know the issues that they would like to discuss the event. These results will be used to guide the sessions.
