In an open, bottom-up and collaborating manner, the NRIs work throughout the year on strengthening the Internet governance ecosystem, locally and globally.
As a result of this cooperation, written outputs have been developed. Below is an overview of those, updated as new items emerge.
These outputs range from substantive publications to process-related items.
The NRIs host several types of sessions at the annual IGF meeting. These sessions are prepared in a bottom-up manner, through open consultative process among all NRIs, carried out by the IGF Secretariat. Read more about:
The IGF remote hub can be defined as a local in-person meeting taking place at the same time with an ongoing IGF meeting irrespective of the time zone. Hubs gather people from all stakeholder groups interested to take active, organised participation in sessions hosted at the IGF. They are organised at local levels, for example in schools, at universities, office premises etc. How could NRIs support engagement of their communities with the IGF through a remote hub? This document outlines logistics how to do so.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development underlines the potential of information and communications technology and global interconnectedness to accelerate human progress, bridge the digital divide and develop knowledge societies, as does scientific and technological innovation across areas as diverse as medicine and energy. This potential is dependant on good digital policies, which is the priority for the national, regional and youth IGF processes. And on this journey to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and sustainable development, the role of national parliaments, as well as of governments and public institutions is essential. This high goal of long-term transforming our world is the reason more for active engagement of parliaments and governments in the multistakeholder processes of the NRIs.
The brochure provides essential information on why members of parliaments and governments should engage in NRIs processes.
