Following the interview with Maja Lubarda
, we have now Tatiana Chirev
, who was also recently interviewed on the ICANN Newsletter. Tatiana is also coming to Geneva for the EuroDig and shares her experience in the Moldova Internet scene.
DIPLO IGCBP: Tatiana, can you share with us a little bit of your experiences with eLearning?
TATIANA: I took the courses because I was already familiar with the IG issue thanks to Youth Leaders for Community Development through Internet Governance project, supported by the Global Knowledge Partnership Secretariat (GKPS), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This project has been implemented in partnership with DiploFoundation. Since the project was a local one, I was interested to hear another opinion about the Internet Governance issue from the participants from different countries and also to learn more about IG. This wasn’t my first e-learning experience but it was a great, interactive and valuable one. The courses brought me more knowledge in the IG field, new friends and the willingness to continue to explore the IG field.
DIPLO IGCBP: Tell us more about the current situation in your country: what do you see as the main challenges ahead? What are the main topics of interest for you in Internet governance? And how do you expect to touch these issues on the EuroDig?
TATIANA: Moldova, as many other countries, is a beginner in the IG field. Even if we have adopted certain laws related to Internet Governance, we have to do more like building a strong informational society consisting of different stakeholders. From EuroDIG I expect to hear and learn about the best practices in IG field that could be implemented in my country.
DIPLO IGCBP: What are the professional and research projects you would like to continue over the next years? What type of people would you like to be connected to for these goals?
TATIANA: My further steps are to continue the creation of ISOC Moldova Chapter which now is in formation. I also really hope that we will finalize the translation of IG booklet into Romanian language together with our colleagues from Romania. The people I would like to meet are those who are directly involved in the Internet Governance field.
DIPLO IGCBP: Thanks, Tatiana - we look forward to meet you in Geneva and recommend that those interested to get involved in ICANN activities follow her advice and also add her as a friend on the Community, and join the EuroDig group.
