Fully complying with the IGF criteria and procedures, yIGF-Myanmar has been recognized as an official IGF initiative by the United Nations IGF Secretariat on 9 March, 2022 (www.intgovforum.org/en/content/youth-initiatives). 

As our aim is to advocate Internet Governance and to create a youth open platform for expressing the ideas and exchange thoughts on Internet Governance in the local community, some of the youth committee members out of 15, are gathered for organizing the very first Youth Internet Governance Forum in Myanmar.
