YouthLACIGF 2017

August 1st, Panama City, Panama

Event Registration

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 YouthLACIGF?

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.


On this occasion, a very limited number of partial fellowships will be provided. From June 14 to 23, 2017, interested parties may apply to receive a partial fellowship financed by the sponsors, which consists solely and exclusively of the air ticket (round trip) from the city of residence of the fellow to Panama City, Panama. Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted.
