Internet Society’s Ambassadors to the 9th Internet Governance Forum in Istanbul

Please join the Internet Society in congratulating this year’s cohort of Next Generation Ambassadors to the 9th Internet Governance Forum (IGF) taking place in Istanbul 2-5 September.

This accomplished group of next generation leaders work around the globe and across disciplines. As policy makers, technologists, academics, journalists, activists, and business persons they represent the passions, interests, and voices of their communities.

They also represent the spirit and practice of the IGF through their commitment to engage in multistakeholder mechanisms and to take best practices from the communities to the IGF and from the IGF back to their communities — ultimately designing and delivering local solutions to drive global impact.

Formed in 2011, the Internet Society’s Internet Leadership programme brings under a single umbrella many of the Internet Society’s leadership and education initiatives. This builds on the Internet Society’s deep and broad history of capacity building.

Now in its 7th year, the Internet Society’s Ambassadors to IGF ensures that the next generation of Internet leaders and influencers have visibility and voice — and are equipped to drive the outcomes that are so important to all of us and the billions yet to come online.

2014 is a critical year in addressing the significant challenges for the global Internet. We are excited about bringing these new and important voices to this year’s IGF — and seeing and experiencing their future contributions.

Learn more about their extraordinary and diverse backgrounds on our website.
