The first ever Youth LACIGF took place in the city of San José, Costa Rica. This initiative born from the growing community of Latin American youth interested in issues related to the Internet. Given the active role that the youth have started taking, this new space is created with multi-sectoral characteristics, as a forum for debate of new ideas and perspectives to encourage the creation of lines of discussion that will be taken to other forums.
The agenda for this edition was defined based on the results of a public poll conducted between the end of June and the beginning of July, 2016. More than 70 users voted. Then, main members of the initiative formed a program Committee composed of representatives of all the stakeholders involved. This Committee was responsible for defining the agenda, the
format of the discussions and logistics details.
The topics discussed at this meeting were “Infrastructure and Access”, “Human Rights and Internet”, “Surveillance and Cybersecurity” and “Youth and the Internet Governance: What Is The Future?”
