About the initiative
Mauritius Youth Internet Governance Forum (Mauritius Youth IGF) is a platform for local youth to learn about Internet governance and voice out their opinions. Recognised by the IGF secretariat of United Nations, it also serves as the bridge to the sub regional Indian Ocean Islands youth community.
This initiative started in 2018 whereby Mauritius IGF 2018 dedicated a whole day session to the youth and the Forum was inaugurated by the Mauritian Minister of Gender & Child Welfare. Multi stakeholder experts encouraged the involvement of young people in Mauritius to take forward the Internet Governance agenda.
Mauritius Youth Internet Governance Forum (Mauritius Youth IGF) is constituted of an organising committee headed by the director of Internet Child Safety Foundation (ICSF). The Youth IGF has seven (7) committee members and they are from the civil society, technical community and the private sector.
