To: isoc-members-announce@elists.isoc.org

Dear Members:

The Internet Society (ISOC) is happy to announce a new programme
beginning in 2010: the ISOC Next Generation Leaders (NGL) programme.
The NGL was officially launched 6 October 2009 at a youth forum lunch
during the ITU Telecom World week in Geneva.  The programme is aimed
at emerging talents across the globe, between the ages of 20 and 40,
and is a unique blend of coursework and practical experience to help
prepare young professionals from around the world to become the next
generation of Internet technology, policy, and business leaders.

Programme entrants will complete a tailored eLearning course, covering
the essential topics required for effective interactions and
relationships within
the Internet ecosystem, as well as key concepts and emerging issues in
Internet governance.  They will be encouraged to apply for the
Internet Society’s representation programmes, such as ISOC
Ambassadorships to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), the World
Bank, and OECD, and the ISOC Fellowship to the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

At the end of the programme, all Next Generation Leaders programme
graduates will be invited to submit a proposal for a project focused
on an Internet development issue within their own communities. Of
those, three projects will be chosen and the respective project
leaders will be invited to Geneva for a final, one-week course in
Internet diplomacy.  The three project leaders will be recognized as
the Next Generation Leaders programme laureates, rewarded with special
opportunities to network with some of the Internet’s most respected
leaders and to participate in special leadership events, and they may
be encouraged to start new Internet Society Chapters in their

More information on the programme can be found at
  There is an e-brochure available for download on the site in the 5
official UN languages.
