IGF Ambassadors Programme : The Internet Society is now accepting submissions.

Close call for applications : 22 July

IGF Ambassadorships are for young Internet Society members who have a strong interest in the issues and themes of the Internet Governance Forum.

 

The individuals chosen as IGF Ambassadors take part in the Internet Governance Forum itself, providing subject matter expertise and facilitating the exchange of information and best practices with key stakeholders participating in the meetings. In the lead up to the Forum itself, each ambassador will be paired with a mentor – an experienced IGF participant, often a former recipient of this award – who will help them prepare and familiarise themselves with the relevant IGF materials, as well as acting as a point of contact at the meeting itself.

Ambassadors represent the Internet Society by promoting the organization’s positions on public policy issues related to the discussions happening at the IGF. They also contribute by providing local and regional perspectives and opinions to enhance the quality of the various sessions and workshops.

 

Selection Criteria

Ambassadorship awards are available for first-time and returning ambassadors. Selection for the Ambassadorships is competitive. All applicants must be:

  • between the ages of 20 and 40
  • a member of the Internet Society
  • able to present a strong motivation for attending the IGF meeting
  • able to demonstrate interest and expertise in issues on the IGF agenda
  • able to demonstrate experience in leading Internet governance discussions at the international level and in multi-cultural environments
  • capable of appropriately representing the Internet Society and its views and policies as an Ambassador during the IGF
  • capable of  continuing to work with the Internet Society locally after the IGF.
The selection committee will also attempt to achieve professional, geographical, and gender diversity in the overall selections.

Why You Should Apply

The Ambassadors themselves will gain valuable insight and experience through their exposure to a range of stakeholders from numerous disciplines across the Internet ecosystem and benefit from the high visibility of their engagement.

There are a range of other benefits to be derived from the programme, both for the Ambassadors and discussions around Internet governance:

  • Focus attention on emerging leaders who embody the values of the Internet Society, promoting its mission to ensure that “the Internet is for everyone”.
  • Reinforce the importance of multi-disciplinary leaders in fostering the sustainability, robustness, security, stability and development of the Internet.
  • Promote youth citizenship, diplomacy, volunteerism and community service as key aspects of next generation leadership.
  • Empower young Internet professionals by broadening their experience and enabling their participation in public policy debates.
  • Provide opportunities for Ambassadors to participate in the global Internet ecosystem and to interact and engage with the broader Internet Governance community.
  • Increase the visibility of Ambassadors and prepares them to deliver more meaningful impacts at the local and regional level.
