At the 11th Russian Internet Governance Forum (RIGF), which take place on 7-9 April in online format, a special attention will be paid to the Youth Communique on the vision of the global network development. The Youth Communique will become the output document of the Youth RIGF. And the participants will be honoured to present the results of their work during the RIGF along with their ideas and initiatives.
This will allow the IT experts, politicians and other RIGF participants to take the ideas of the younger generation into their arsenal and build a strategy for the development of the Internet, taking into account the opinion of young people.
The RIGF has been held in Russia since 2010 and is part of the UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF), a new model for international discussion of the regulation of the World Wide Web. Its first meeting was held in October 2006 in Athens, and already in 2025, the IGF will be held in Russia for the first time. It is a multilateral institution convened by the decision of the UN Secretary-General as a part of the UN ecosystem. In 2015, the mandate of the Forum was extended for 10 years by the decision of the UN General Assembly.
Within the RIGF, there will be a special course for young people, which can be attended by anyone under 35 years old.
