EuroDIG Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance 2020 for Young Europeans (Funded)
 

Deadline: February 21, 2020

Applications for the EuroDIG Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance 2020 are now open. The Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance (YOUthDIG) is a yearly pre-event to the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) aimed to foster active youth participation.

This year, both meetings are hosted at the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. They will gather 30+ young people from all over Europe for a 3-day YOUthDIG programme (June 8-10, 2020) and EuroDIG (June 11-12, 2020) in which they are going to discuss key topics of Internet governance and policy, network with experts, and draft the 2020 Youth Messages. These messages are policy recommendations, and will be presented at EuroDIG, and the UN Internet Governance Forum.

 

If you are interested in Internet policies, want to exchange on hot topics in media, innovation, cybersecurity, human rights, literacy and more, apply to participate!
