The United Nations created the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) to continue the work of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). The IGF has brought together stakeholders from government, industry, and civil society to discuss Internet governance issues at a series of annual meetings since 2006.
The Internet Society at the IGF
The Internet Society attends the IGF each year as a trusted member of the Internet community. We also established an IGF Ambassador program that brings qualified participants to the IGF from around the world and from all stakeholder groups to learn and to teach about Internet governance. We believe the value of the IGF is its ability to bring together people who might not otherwise meet.
