Many thanks and regards,
The Internet Society is inviting applications for its 2017 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 benefit from their immersion into 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 Internet
Society is currently accepting applications for the following:
* 12th Annual Internet Governance Forum, December 17-21, 2017, Geneva, Switzerland
Information about the programme and links to apply can be found at:
Applications will close on 6 August, 2017 and successful candidates will be notified on 28
I encourage you to apply for this opportunity or pass this information about the programme
to individuals in your network that have a keen interest in the Internet governance and
policy activities of the IGF.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Niel Harper at harper(a)isoc.org.
