This year, the 7th Youth Internet Governance Forum (yIGF) was held in NTUH International Convention Center, Taipei from 26th to 29th July in 2016. With the theme “Responsibility in the Digital World“, we designed a bunch of interactive sessions such as Sharing with guests, Theme games, Idea wall, Simulation game, Roly play discussion, group discussion, and presentation to better engage in the APrIGF workshop discussion.
We are grateful to have 50 overseas University participants from Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia came together and actively participated in activities like Simulation, RolePlay Discussion, and Workshops. Besides Internet Governance, we also incorporate Global Tiger Day Activities into YIGF session, and this is important to equip youth with knowledge that how wild tiger could be harmed by internet activities like online trafficking. We did feel that every one of you is really engaged in sessions that held by us. This the moment that we would never forget in and we look forward to seeing everyone in future
NET (Networking Opportunity, Empowering Youth, Talent Development) is a model to achieve the mission of youth empowerment in internet governance, ambassadors who have received year round training and gained oversee conference experience will form a working group to work on community projects like HKYIGF ,yIGF, APIGA. We hope these kind of community works can raise public awareness of what is internet governance.
