The NetMission Academy offers motivated individuals the chance to further their understanding of Internet Governance issues.
The NetMission Academy is a series of online sessions designed to equip youth with the knowledge and discussion skills to participate in Internet policymaking. The sessions will include one orientation webinar, followed by 7 training workshops. These 1.5-hour workshops will be interactive discussion sessions, with expert guest speakers selected for each topic.
This online academy is not a one-sided learning program. Selected fellows will be assigned into thematic groups to research and prepare for the respective session as a host. All fellows are expected to actively contribute to discussions. If you are a student in tertiary education (undergraduate or postgraduate) and are interested in how the Internet impacts society, this is the program for you.
This will be held in Asia but the process is through online.
Graduates of the academy can become NetMission Ambassadors.
The participants can get the opportunity to join the working group(s) and/or organizing committee(s) of regional conference activities for youth, including APIGA, APrIGF, ICANN, and IGF, to host youth activities at some of these events which involves moderating a policy discussion dialogue.
They get the opportunity to build an initiative for the development of the Internet and advance the governance discussions in Asia.
They will get the benefits of submitting the workshop proposal to the Global Internet Governance Forum held by the United Nations.
