SIGF

About SIGF

The Student Internet Governance Forum (SIGF) is multistakeholder platform, wherein high school students can discuss pressing issues in the field of internet and digital policy. The discussions will permit the students to develop a deeper understanding of the aforementioned issues and contribute to the policymaking space.

This will be achieved through the creation of Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which will discuss an internet or technology policy topic of their choice at SIGF conferences, in addition to creating posters or research articles detailing the various perspectives/views on their topic of choice. These SIGs will entirely be composed of high school students and be overseen by SIGF fellows along with an adult mentor of the SIG's choice.

SIGF is particularly relevant in today's day and age given the complete penetration of technology in the lives of the youth and the great influence it holds. As such, understanding how technology affects the youth and how these effects can be managed is of great importance, and enabling the youth to directly voice their perspective will aid in this effort.
