Dear youthful listers and listers youthful at heart,

Young people are key stakeholders in the IGF ecosystem as they are the
majority in Kenya, Africa and the world over. The IGF secretariat has since
recognized the importance of meaningful youth participation at the IGF
processes and promotes the strengthening of Youth IGF Initiatives.
Youth Initiatives
of the IGF are created with a goal of encouraging and involving young
people in a substantive discussion on Internet governance. These forms, as
well as the national, sub-regional and regional IGFs (NRIs), are expected
to follow the main IGF
<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/lexicon/8#IGF> principles of
being open, inclusive, non-commercial with multi-stakeholder participation
during the whole preparatory phase and the event itself, all in line with a
bottom-up decision-making process.

Kenya Youth IGF is a youth-led structure to develop the capacity for
coordinating, mobilizing and advocating for meaningful inclusion and
engagement of young people in the Kenya IGF in partnership with industry
stakeholders to address key Internet issues. This year’s Kenya YouthIGF
aims at serving as an interactive discussion platform for organized youth
participation from all stakeholder groups to bring up their ideas and
concerns. The Forum will further create opportunities for networking,
collaboration and creating long-term partnerships between key stakeholders
and the community. This year, the YouthIGF is scheduled for 22nd September
2021. The outcomes of the forum will feed into the annual 15th edition of
the Kenya IGF 2021 happening on 23rd September 2021.

On behalf of the organising team, I would like to invite you to this
meeting and ask you to extend this invitation to your networks.

Please find the registration link below.


Looking forward to an engaging session with most of you. Karibuni!

*Kind Regards,*
