Internet Governance Forum – invitation to participate

The IGF Poland-Digital Development Forum together with the Secretary of State, the Government Plenipotentiary for Digital Single Market, Krzysztof Szubert and Igor Ostrowski, AmCham’s Digital Economy Committee Co-Chairman, has organized a meeting on July 12 in the Ministry of Digital Affairs for those who would like to join the Internet Governance Forum. The IGF is a multi-stakeholder platform under the United Nations that facilitates the discussion of public policy issues pertaining to the Internet. AmCham invites you to actively co-create this year’s program.

The Committee members emphasized that the most important value of the IGF is to gather around the Internet for all those willing to cooperate regardless of the environment they represent. At the meeting, we have learnt about the upcoming opening of the workshop competition at this year's conference IGF Poland, which will take place on 21 November.

The program of this year's conference will consist of workshops selected in an open competition. Anyone interested in Internet management can submit a proposal.
