      The Internet Society (ISOC) is happy to announce a new programme
      beginning in 2010: the ISOC Next Generation Leaders (NGL) programme. The
      NGL was officially launched 6 October 2009 at a youth forum lunch during
      the ITU Telecom World week in Geneva.  The programme is aimed at
      emerging talents across the globe, between the ages of 20 and 40, and is
      a unique blend of coursework and practical experience to help prepare
      young professionals from around the world to become the next generation
      of Internet technology, policy, and business leaders.
      
      Programme entrants will complete a tailored eLearning course, covering
      the essential topics required for effective interactions and
      relationships within the Internet ecosystem, as well as key concepts and
      emerging issues in Internet governance.  They will be encouraged to
      apply for the Internet Society’s representation programmes, such as ISOC
      Ambassadorships to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), the World Bank,
      and OECD, and the ISOC Fellowship to the Internet Engineering Task Force
      (IETF).
      
      At the end of the programme, all Next Generation Leaders programme
      graduates will be invited to submit a proposal for a project focused on
      an Internet development issue within their own communities. Of those,
      three projects will be chosen and the respective project leaders will be
      invited to Geneva for a final, one-week course in Internet diplomacy.
      The three project leaders will be recognized as the Next Generation
      Leaders programme laureates, rewarded with special opportunities to
      network with some of the Internet’s most respected leaders and to
      participate in special leadership events, and they may be encouraged to
      start new Internet Society Chapters in their communities.
