Young People Add Their Voices to Internet Policy Discussions in VietnamEngaging young people on internet policy issues that affect their lives was the goal of the Youth Internet Governance Forum (YIGF) held in Hanoi, Vietnam, on 21 and 22 March 2019.
Vietnam’s first-ever YIGF provided young people with an opportunity to share their experiencesand perspectives on internet policy with government officials, business leaders, impact entrepreneurs, journalists, and civil society representatives.
Co-organized by the SecDev Foundation and non-governmental organization Vietnet-ICT, the YIGF was part of the wider Vietnam Internet Forum held on the same dates.
The SecDev Foundation has supported digital safety initiatives in Vietnam for over four years. The Digital Citizenship Vietnam program supports local actors and initiatives that are building awareness and knowledge on key issues that affect internet well-being in Vietnam– from digital risks, through to digital safety and citizenship, and how these connect to the global digital economy.
