Youth Coalition on Internet Governance
Panel - Auditorium - 90 Min
The session of the Youth Coalition on Internet Governance is the main space at the annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum where young people can exchange experiences and points of view on Internet issues around the world. This year our session on "Road to future IGFs" will focus on opportunities to get people planned for our future youth engagement at IGF in the following years.
The onsite moderator will start presenting the session, with a little on what YCIG is for newcomers and a little about the historical aspects of the YCIG and last year's achievements, then the moderator will start asking the following question to the panelists:
1) Firstly, our speakers from relevant youth initiatives will bring their insights from their countries and regions regarding their experiences in the participation of youth in IG and how they see the future of Youth engagement and suggest which good practices have been implemented in the past to increase youth involvement. This section will last 20 minutes including Q&A from the Audience and Panelists.
2) Secondly, the speakers will raise their opinions about the Roadmap to future IGFs, cooperation, and coordination around all Youth NRIs, especially Dynamic Coalitions, BPFs, and Policy Networks for achieving the goals of the Global Digital Compact. This section will last also 20 minutes including Q&A from the Audience and Panelists.
3) Next, attendees will have 10 minutes to comment on their youth initiatives and to add 3 or 4 words phrase via a Mentimeter Wordcloud, and the onsite moderator will be reading and deepening the concepts with the speakers as the word cloud is being formed, the online moderator will share via Zoom chat the link to the Mentimeter.
4) Afterwards, we will present a summary of the work done by the Youth Coalition on Internet Governance during the year and invite people to join the Electoral Voting process, which will take place a few weeks after the IGF.
Finally, we will take the group photo with online and on-site participants. We will edit the final photo as it will seem that we are all attending in Ethiopia.
1) We will have 1 onsite moderator directing the session and giving the floor to the speakers both on-site and online.
In the slots for opinions and questions from the public/audience, for each of the questions, the onsite moderator will be attentive to the physical queue and will ask the online moderator in the case of hands raised or written comments, in which case the questions will be allowed in a round-robin basis (that is, starting with the online hands and written chats, and then following the physical queue, and so on). The online moderator has the main task of maintaining the order of the raised hands and written chat, reading the questions, and giving the floor to online audience speakers. That way we will achieve an equal foot between the online and on-site audience.
2) How will you design the session to ensure the best possible experience for online and onsite participants?
The online moderator will be posting messages in the Zoom chat for people to prepare questions in the chat or raise their hands. We will use Mentimeter Word Cloud for part 3) already explained.
3) Please note any complimentary online tools/platforms you plan to use to increase participation and interaction during the session.
We will use Mentimeter’s Wordcloud and the onsite moderator will be reading and deepening the concepts with the speakers as the word cloud is being formed, the online moderator will share via Zoom chat the link to the Mentimeter in session part 3.

Targets: We think the youth plays a role in achieving every SDG via ways of cooperation. It is known that youth wisdom will bring a more inclusive and equitable development thanks to the innovation factor, which will allow us to get closer to all the sustainable development goals. Examples could be given, but we make it clear that the empowerment of young people already contributes to the development of plans and proposals related to each SDG.
