Hello everyone! It’s good to finally be here. Welcome to the official website for the first Malaysian Youth-Internet Governance Forum, which will be held in 2019.
On behalf of the Malaysian Y-IGF committee, we are very happy to welcome you to our page. If you’re a student or a recent grad, you might want to check out these pages below to get you started on your journey here at our website:
Had a look at those? Wanna get involved? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered:
Other than to give you a quick brief on our website, we also would love to share the a brief direction of where we’ll be heading towards in the next couple of months! The vision for this year’s Malaysian Y-IGF to be able to create an event by us, but for the youth and with the youth! Let me elaborate:
The main goal for the Y-IGF 2019 is the annual event, which will take place around the October/November 2019 period (Stay tuned for updates on that!). But it goes way further than having an a boring conference-style event, we wanna make sure that this event blows all of you away! That means making sure every one of your opinions on the topics is heard and considered by panelists and other participants, by having the most diverse and holistically represented participants and topics in the event, and most importantly, by making sure all of you go home having learned something from the Y-IGF in order to further cultivate your interest and understanding in the internet in Malaysia!
But that’s a big goal, even for us. Which is why we’ll need all the help we can get, from you guys. Which brings me to the next thing I wanna share with all of you; Our capacity Building workshops:
During the entire month of August we’ll be having capacity building workshops all over the country (Stay tuned for the finalised schedule and university list soon!). The aim of the workshops will be to introduce the idea of the Y-IGF to all of you and more interestingly, get your opinions and ideas on the topics and issues that we should cover during our event! For now, you can click here to here a little more about those workshops!
We’ll also be keeping all of you updated on your social media platforms, and the news section on our website! Give us a quick poke below:
That’s it from us for now guys! Hopefully, you guys are as geared up for the first Y-IGF as we are! 🥳
