Objet : [NRIs List] IGF 2019 Call for Travel Support

Dear Colleagues,

The Call for Travel Support to attend the 14th annual IGF meeting<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/supporting-participation-at-the-igf-2019-annual-meeting> is open until 30 June 2019: https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/supporting-participation-at-the-igf-2019-annual-meeting

During the IGF 2018 meeting in Paris, the United Nations Secretary-General has called for action to increase inclusiveness in the IGF processes. Specifically, it was called for a ‘dedicated effort to include and amplify the weak and missing voices’, as well as for the IGF to evolve toward a more multidisciplinary framework (see full speech<http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/igf-2018-address-to-the-internet-governance-forum-by-un-sg-ant%C3%B3nio-guterres>).
Historically, the IGF community has also advised to increase diversity in the IGF processes.
For these reasons, the IGF 2019 Host Country, Government of Germany, will support eligible stakeholders to participate at the 14th annual IGF meeting in Berlin, from 25 – 29 November 2019.

Application and Selection Process
All interested stakeholders are invited to submit their expressions of interest through a dedicated form<https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/igf-2019-call-for-travel-support> at the IGF website by 30 June 2019. The IGF Secretariat/UNDESA will collaborate with the multistakeholder organizing committees of the national, regional and youth IGF initiatives (NRIs) in order to identify the most suitable candidates that will enrich the IGF 2019 processes, but also bring long-term benefits to their respective communities from gained experience.

Potential applicants are kindly advised to consult the IGF website and review all information about the application and evaluation procedure, before submitting requests.

Best regards,
IGF Secretariat
