Bonsoir à tous,

Heureux de savoir qu'il y a une telle initiative pour les jeunes afin de
leur permettre de participer au processus de la gouvernance de l'Internet
sur le continent.

Bien à vous,

> Dear Afralo Members,
> This mail comes to announce the commencement of registration for the West
> African Youth Internet Governance Forum.
> The West Africa Youth Internet Governance (WAYIGF) is a sub-regional
> initiative under the United Nations Internet Governance Forum. It exists
> first and foremost to provide a platform for youth in West Africa to
> contribute to discussions on Internet-related issues from where it affects
> them the most as young people.
> To enable this, the initiative engages in capacity building activities to
> offer youth the opportunity to learn, be informed and better equipped to
> contribute meaningfully to such discussions.
> While youth are the largest demographic group on the Internet, they are
> still underrepresented at the Internet Governance Forum. We believe that
> young people have a high knowledge of the digital world they interact with
> daily and therefore deserve to play a stronger role in decision making, and
> policy processes regarding the Internet.
> This year the WAYIGF will be hosted in Freetown, Sierra Leone. 50+ young
> people from all over West Africa will gather for the 1-day Summit on July
> 22, 2020, to discuss key topics on Internet governance and policy, network
> with experts, and draft the 2020 Youth Messages. These messages are policy
> recommendations and will be presented at WAIGF, and the Africa Internet
> Governance Forum.
> If you are interested in Internet policies, want to contribute to trending
> topics in media, innovation, cybersecurity, human rights, literacy and
> more, apply to participate!
> Eligibility criteria:
>    - between 18-30 years old;
>    - residing in a West Africa Country
>    - participate in preliminary webinars (dates TBA)
>    - Show interest in Internet governance, and motivation to actively
>    participate in WAYIGF.
