WP 2021 - Let’s discuss ‘governance’ in Internet Governance

Alicante, Spain | 7-11 of July 2021

The Young European Federalists Europe (JEF Europe) is looking for two Senior trainers and one Junior trainer to facilitate a 5-day international seminar organised in the framework of the Work Plan 2021 ‘Let’s discuss the “governance” in Internet Governance!’.

About the project 

The project aims to bring diverse stakeholders, whether or not they are involved in Internet governance processes, to discuss and raise awareness about the role of young people in governance in the ‘Internet Governance’.

Therefore JEF Europe with the Work Plan 2021, through blended activities, national debates, international educational activities and advocacy actions, seeks to develop the skills and understanding of young people from diverse backgrounds  to enable them to reflect on how they can work to overcome the challenges of youth participation in internet governance processes at European level. 

More info here: Work Plan 2021.

About the international seminar

It will take place from the 7th to the 11th of July. The working language of the stakeholders meeting will be English and it aims to gather 20 young people from all over Europe. It aims at  training young people,  focusing on a people-centred and rights-based approach to Internet Governance and empowering them to be potential multipliers in their countries and  youth ambassadors in internet governance policy by organising national events with policy-makers. Participants will tackle the national, regional and international levels and the different actors in the field as well as practical examples to develop their own policy recommendations towards a democratic Internet Governance.

The activity will consist of 2 different parts in which the trainers will be involved:

1- An online preparatory meeting will last for 2 hours with the participants will be organised 1 or 2 weeks (dates tbc) prior to the seminar. It will be implemented to make sure that the participants will have the needed knowledge and competence to be actively involved in the sessions during the event in Alicante. In addition,  participants will get to know each other, the team and trainers, and we will present the results of the Expert meeting which took place in March and the Policy Brief  built on the experts’ inputs and JEF Europe desk research. 

      • Trainers will be in charge of preparing the sessions of the online meeting to make it interactive and stimulating to the participants with the support of JEF Europe team.

2- The international seminar in Alicante (Spain) will be the highlight of the international activity where the participants will use the knowledge they have already obtained but also develop new skills and participate in the interactive sessions during the event and create synergies with their peers from other European countries. It will be implemented based on non-formal methodology, aiming at offering space for the participants to participate and be in the center of the educational activity. The seminar will involve discussion, presentations but also informal education methods like simulations (explained in the agenda which will be communicated to the selected trainers) and development of policy recommendations that will be used in the next steps of the project.

      • Trainers will be in charge of preparing the sessions outlines with the support of JEF Europe team and on the daily programme already developed for the application.

As a direct result of the seminar, a set of recommendations and vision of Internet Governance on European and Global level will be developed and will be used in the next phases of the project, in particular for the final event of the year but as a starting point for questions for the national roundtables to be organised with decision-makers/stakeholders by the participants afterwards.
