The main idea of the present proposal for an Open Forum is to share with the IGF multi-stakeholder community the concept and the outcomes of the Youth IGF Movement meetings that took place around the world.
The format of the Open Forum is intended to be a debate between the young from the Youth IGF Movement and the Information Society experts namely the members of the EU Delegation to the IGF, as well as the representatives of the Asia-Pacific community, African countries and Latin America.
We would like also to invite the leaders of the private sector for discussion with these young leaders. The Open Forum welcomes the representatives of other youth initiatives to enagage in an inclusive dialogue with the leaders of the IGF community.
Four main topics have been identified by the young for discussion:
* Fake news online
* GPDR and the impact on EU and non-EU young citizens
* Blockchain technology and the need for new digital skills: young entrepreneurship
* Raising awareness of the young on internet safety and their responsibilities: the role of the young
The purpose of this Open Forum is to allow the voice of young people to be heard by Information Society experts on issues related to internet governance and to help young people to take an active part in decision-making processes.
One of the focus points will also be to see how the recommendations which emerge from the present Open Forum can be taken into consideration at national and regional levels and what needs to be done to achieve this.
