RIGF for beginners
For the first time, a youth track will be held on the sidelines of the Eleventh Russian Internet Governance Forum (RIGF 2021). We invite students, postgraduates and recent alumni interested in the development and use of the Internet and technology to participate. On the youth track, we, together with invited experts and practitioners, will discuss the main issues from the RIGF program, and then we will formulate the Youth Messages that will be presented at the final RIGF session on April 9, 2021!
To join the youth track, you must register and complete a quiz, which will help you dive into the basics of Internet governance and understand the global context of the RIGF discussions. The test task will be sent after registration, the deadline for the task is March 18.
The list of participants will be announced on March 20, 2021.
Undergraduate, graduate and graduate students under 35.
- Acceptance of applications and selection stage: until March 18
- Preparatory work: March 21 – April 5
- The final part: April 9
Acceptance of applications is over
Four preparatory online meetings with experts are planned for the participants to discuss RIGF topics and formulate their own conclusions, which will be transformed into Youth Messages. Participants will then follow the sections of the forum, noting if the discussion abstracts differ from their conclusions. At the final section of the forum, the participants of the youth track will present their messages.
