The Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance (YOUthDIG) 2023 application period is currently open. A yearly pre-event to the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG), the YOUthDIG aims to encourage young people’s active engagement.

For a pre-event program that will prepare young people who are interested in themes related to the Internet to become active participants in EuroDIG, organizers are looking for 30 young people from around Europe (member states at the Council of Europe).

During YOUthDIG, you may network with young people from across Europe while learning about internet governance, discussing it with knowledgeable internet policy practitioners, and exchanging ideas with them. You will be actively involved by developing policy messages (see Reporting) that you will be presenting at EuroDIG but also the global IGF.

The YOUthDIG event will be composed of an online phase with virtual meetings and the physical event. The YOUthDIG in person meeting will be held from June 16 – 19, followed by EuroDIG on June 19 – 21, both in Tampere, Finland.
