YouthLACIGF is an annual initiative that began in 2016 from the growing community of young people in Latin America and the Caribbean interested in being part of the dialogues that take place for the development of the Internet.
The youth meeting took place in August 5th, in the city of La Paz, Bolivia. The organizing process started in January 2019 when we invited Youth Observatory members to take part in online meetings to shape the fourth edition of the Youth LACIGF, having our communication at our official Telegram group in order to set the working commissions.
In order to create an Internet Governance Initiative that achieves the goals of openness, transparency, inclusiveness, non-commercial, and multi-stakeholder participation, the main organizers established a dialogue with other stakeholders interested in the event. At the end of July, we had the participation of 5 actors from different stakeholder groups which conform the Organization Committee.
The Committee decided to use the format of “Break-out groups” to maximize the participation of all attendees in our agenda. The event was open to the public, free of charge and was widely disseminated in digital media.
