About Our Team
Our team comprised from different backgrounds and we gathered to initiate the yIGF Myanmar. The multistakeholder Organizing Committee comprises three (3) stakeholder groups out of four, such as Civil Society, Private, and Technical, as per the IGF's stakeholder groups classification. Some of the organizing committee members who got involved in the Asia Pacific regional and global Internet governance-related activities including NetMission Academy, Asia Pacific Internet Governance Academy (APIGA), APrIGF Fellowship program, APNIC Fellowship program, Asia Pacific School of Internet Governance (APSIG), United National IGF 2021, are supporting the team to be able to organize the forum according to the NRIs principles.
The ten volunteer members gathered together to implement the social media project firstly with their own efforts independently after February 2021. In late 2021, they connected to the UN IGF Secretariat with the help of the APrIGF Secretariat. In December 2021, the Organizing Committee of Youth IGF Myanmar submitted a written statement outlining the essential information to register in the UN IGF aligned with NRI Principles. In March 2022, it was successfully recognized as one of the official Youth IGF initiatives.
