APPLY NOW! @InternetSociety Ambassador to the Internet Governance Forum (João Pessoa, Brazil) #igf

Internet SocietyThe Internet Society is inviting applications for its latest Internet Society Ambassadors to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF). IGF Ambassadors will gain valuable insight and experience through their exposure to a range of stakeholders and discussions from numerous disciplines across the Internet ecosystem and benefit from their immersion into the IGF week of activities.

The Internet Governance Forum (IGF) serves to bring people together from various stakeholder groups as equals, in discussions on public policy issues relating to the Internet. While there is no negotiated outcome, the IGF informs and inspires those with policy-making power in both the public and private sectors.  At their annual meeting delegates discuss, exchange information and share good practices with each other. The IGF facilitates a common understanding of how to maximize Internet opportunities and address risks and challenges that arise.

Ambassadorships will be awarded through a competitive application process. The Internet Society is currently accepting applications for the 10th Annual Internet Governance Forum, November 9-13, 2015, João Pessoa, Brazil.

Information about the programme and links to apply can be found at: Applications will close on 2 August, 2015. For further info contact Niel Harper at
