Brief Description:

This will be a very informal event focusing on Youth perspective of Internet Governance. The main idea is to let the young people speak and the seniors to listen, unlike other events where the opposite happen. And, we do not have any senior or experienced speaker onsite just to make sure that only the young people can speak and they do not feel shy to speak up which is very important. The forum will discuss key issues including connectivity and access, privacy and security, online child safety, women empowerment, IPv6, DNSSEC, IoT etc. We would like to collect views of the young people and place it in front of the global leaders during the upcoming UN IGF 2016 meeting. We encourage the young people to understand the issues of the Internet that affect us and speak up so that our voice is heard by the information society leaders.
