As part of an ongoing effort to increase youth participation in the global dialogue about Internet governance, the RIPE NCC offers fellowships that allow young people from the RIPE NCC service region to attend regional Internet Governance Forums (IGFs). Thanks to these fellowships, Thijl Klerkx (19) from the Netherlands and Ana Kakalashvili (20) from Georgia attended the second Arab IGF, which took place this week in Algeria.

Both Ana and Thijl got the opportunity to speak at a panel called The Culture of Innovation and Development Opportunities, and contributed to other workshops and discussions. We hope to publish a short report on their experiences on RIPE Labs in the near future.
