The Internet Society is inviting applications for its 2018 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 ultimately benefit from their immersion in 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 are no negotiated outcomes, 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 current selection round is for the following:
** 13th Internet Governance Forum (IGF), November 11-14 November, 2018 in Paris, France **
