Collaborative Leadership Exchange (CLX)

The Collaborative Leadership Exchange builds on a successful model first launched at the 2012 Global INET and then replicated at IGF meetings in Bali (2013), Istanbul (2014), João Pessoa (2015), Guadalajara (2016), and Geneva (2017).

The session takes the format of an unconference, with equal parts of peer-to-peer style learning and engagement, networking and relationship building, interactive discussions and promotion of increased collaboration across the Internet ecosystem.

The session is supported and attended by partners such as DotAsia, Youth@IGF, IEEE, APC and others.
