The Youth IGF Project was created by Childnet International to include the voice of children and young people at the Internet Governance Forum.
The Youth IGF Project is now entering in its fifth year of amplifying the voice of youth in a meaningful way at the Internet Governance Forum.
2012 saw an important new step for the Youth IGF Project with the launch of a global youth survey and a fully youth chaired 'feeder' workshop at the IGF in Baku.
The Youth IGF Project has inspired other similar projects, and the 2012 IGF saw the presence of new youth participants in addition to the Youth IGF Project. We were very pleased to be able to collaborate with these partners and invite the youth participants to join the panel of our workshop.
We will continue to speak to children and young people throughout the UK and further afield about their online experiences, their online rights and their wishes for the future of the internet, taking them and their voice to the IGF.
Please contact us to find out how you can support the project and get involved.
