Digital Diving
When and Where: 15-18 November, the Youth Corner at the IGF Village
Chill in the Digital Diving lounge in the Youth Corner and explore the colourful world of “digital natives”!

“Many young people (the majority in the developed world) routinely use a wide variety of digital tools for information, communication, social networking and entertainment channels during their everyday lives. The generation of people under 25 has grown up with access to digital communication technologies and in societies increasingly conditioned by digital communication. These technologies have often been pervasive during their early years, during their formative experiences, and whilst they are making important life decisions.

The differences between this “connected generation” (“digital natives”) and older generations are in some cases greater than conventional North-South digital divides. This complicates the policy making environment since those making decisions may not fully understand the technology and environments they are discussing...”

Ever used twitter & facebook & blip & vimeo & blog & messenger & flickr & ... - simultaneously?
Give a try! Share the experience with the young ones!
Dive into the world of “digital natives”!

Social Reporting

When and Where: 15-18 November, the Youth Corner and throughout the venue
Reporting from the event and capturing multiple perspectives and views Using the emerging online tools and services (blog posts, twitter comments, blip interviews, social network inputs) for combining social reporting and knowledge management techniques, participants will report from the event with special attention to developmental aspects and youth perspectives on the future of Internet governance. The aggregation and mashing of various feeds will be presented online.

Internet Governance Debates
When and Where: 15-18 November, lunch-time, the Youth Corner at the IGF Village
A chance to openly debate important IG issues:
“Will the Affirmation of Commitments reinforce multistakeholder participation and accountability and improve the policy-making process in ICANN?”
“Does cloud computing present more risks than actual benefits for Internet users?”
“Is the ‘three strikes’ regulation a valid and effective way to protect copyright?”
Must “Network Neutrality be preserved to protect Internet users’ rights to access to the services and applications that they choose?”

Take a stance: argue “In favour” or “Against”. Test your position in a controversial discussion. Join the IG Debate!
