Seminar: Youth IGF Barbados 2019

Youth IGF Barbados 2019 is a national initiative in similar vein to the global Internet Governance Forum (IGF) held under the auspices of the United Nations (UN) IGF Secretariat.

Theme: Smart Youth for a Smart Barbados.

Youth Initiatives of the IGF are created with a goal of encouraging and involving young people in substantive discussion on Internet governance. These IGF formations, as well as national, sub-regional and regional IGFs, are expected to follow the main IGF principles of being open, inclusive, non-commercial with a multi-stakeholder participation during the whole preparatory phase and the event itself, all in line with a bottom up decision making process.
