The Internet Government Forum (IGF) is inviting stakeholders to submit session proposals for the 2024 IGF. Proposals are to focus on the four subthemes to be held under the overarching theme, “Building our Multistakeholder Digital Future”.

The IGF 2024 is being organized in a hybrid format and welcomes participants at the physical venue in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as online. The goal of the sessions is for all participants, whether onsite or online, to engage in an equally meaningful way in IGF sessions.

Workshop and session organizers are expected to consider elements of interactivity and accommodate the hybrid format in their proposals. For workshop proposals competitively evaluated by the Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG), these elements of hybrid interactivity will be a factor in a proposal’s overall rating.

The four subthemes of the IGF 2024 are: Harnessing innovation and balancing risks in the digital space; Enhancing the digital contribution to peace, development, and sustainability; Advancing human rights and inclusion in the digital age; and Improving Digital Governance for the Internet We Want

The IGF 2024 First Open Consultations and MAG Meeting reviewed the inputs from the IGF 2024 thematic and stocktaking calls, and as a result, decided on the subthemes

Both thematic inputs and stocktaking processes are open to everyone.
