The virtual Internet Governance Forum 2020 is starting soon

Stiftung Digitale Chancen

On Monday, November 2, the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) 2020 will begin, this year in digital format as a virtual IGF, hosted by the United Nations. This year’s motto is "Internet for human resilience and solidarity". Here, economic, civil society, and technical representatives meet with high-ranking government representatives from all around the world and address the four thematic tracks: data, environment, inclusion, and trust.

During the first week a series of sessions and workshops of the IGF’s Dynamic Coalitions and the national and regional IGF initiatives will take place. In addition, open forums and events of transnational organizations will be held. In the second week, the program, which is divided into four thematic areas by the Multistakeholder Advisory Group, will begin. Until November 17, the program will include workshops, sessions, and roundtable discussions that will focus on the challenges of digital transformation for society.

Children’s rights and child protection have gained high awareness in the Internet Governance eco-system over the years since the Dynamic Coalition on Child Online Safety started its work in Rio in 2007.

We have produced a schedule of the sessions addressing aspects of children and youth growing up in a digital environment to make it more convenient for you to take part online. During the IGF week we will report from the event with a special focus on these sessions.

For the participation in the IGF a registration is necessary. Please be kindly advised here to register before October 26.
