The Internet Governance Forum 2019 takes place in Berlin, Germany for the first time, and you have the opportunity to participate in the host country youth initiative – the Youth IGF Summit. Leading up to the Internet Governance Forum in November, this initiative aims to connect 50+ young people (aged 18-30) from all world regions and backgrounds who are active in Internet Governance and related fields. 

Together, you are going to share and network the outcomes of your work in order to arrive at the Youth IGF Messages 2019, which you shall present and advocate for to a global audience. The decentralized part of the program starts in September 2019 with webinars and conference calls. The Youth IGF Summit takes place on November 24 in Berlin, right before the IGF. Participants then formulate and decide on the Youth Positions. The summit culminates in a presentation on Day 0 of the Internet Governance Forum. 

The working language is English. Application is open to all interested individuals aged 18 to 30. We encourage young people from all world regions and backgrounds to participate.

Apply until August 2, 2019 through this form. In case of urgent questions, please refer to, make sure to include “CfA Youth IGF Summit” in the subject line.
