Q1 Community Forum 2017 – Youth & the Internet

‹ Back

The Internet Society hosted a special Community Forum, “Youth on the Internet.” Hundreds of participants from across 6 continents joined the conversation to share their views on what the Internet means to them.

A special thanks to our Next Generation Leaders who were panellists – Evelyn Namara (Uganda), Veronica Arroyo (Peru), Yuza Setiawan (Indonesia) for a vibrant discussion on topics such as how young people can address privacy and security concerns, and how the Internet can help close the gender gap.

We also launched the new “25 Under 25” initiative. In celebration of the Internet Society’s 25th anniversary and as we look to the future, we want to identify 25 passionate, young people between the ages of 13 and 25 who are using the Internet to make a difference in their communities.

Awardees will be guests at a reception in their honour co-located with the 2017 Internet Hall of Fame induction ceremony in September. There will be plenty of opportunities for the 25 under 25 awardees to network with the Internet pioneers, innovators and global connectors who made significant contributions to the development and advancement of the Internet.
