IGF 2024 Call for Pre-events ('Day 0' Events)

Organizations interested in arranging Pre-events or 'Day 0' Events are invited to submit requests for a session slot through the application e-form.  

Pre-events will be held on the day before the official 19th IGF programme begins, or Day 0. Slots are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, taking into account space availability, the relevance of the requests received, and the regional and stakeholder balance of the overall Day 0 programme. The format and content of pre-events are up to the organizers, but the pre-event must have a link to Internet governance and, to the extent possible, should be linked to the IGF 2024 subthemes.

IGF 2024 Subthemes 

  • Harnessing innovation and balancing risks in the digital space
  • Enhancing the digital contribution to peace, development, and sustainability
  • Advancing human rights and inclusion in the digital age
  • Improving digital governance for the Internet We Want

The organizers understand that on this ‘unofficial’ day they may not have the same support - in terms of live transcription - as sessions in the regular programme.

Session support: Webcast: Yes | Transcription: No | Interpretation: No

The deadline for requesting Pre-event slots at the 19th IGF is 5 May 2024, 23:59 UTC​.
