Event description

Register for free for the final SEEDIG 7 Series event “Faces of Internet Governance in SEE+: Intergenerational Dialogue” that will be held via Zoom on 29 November 2021 from 16:00 to 17:30 CET.


seedig7 waiting room logoFaces of Internet governance in SEE+ is an intergenerational dialogue with and about people driving change in the Internet governance (IG) field in South-Eastern Europe. For this conversation, we will host pathfinders who started developing the IG ecosystem in the region and beyond and emerging leaders from SEEDIG Youth School alumni who will have to shape its future. By bringing together prominent leaders of two generations, we will have a chance to see the evolution of career development in IG over the decades. The IG field is changing so drastically and so fast that one must permanently learn and explore new career opportunities. We will ask our guests to share how they managed the growing pressure for change and how they feel about the competition in the IG field.

The event is aimed to show the human potential of the South-Eastern European region. During the Internet governance forums, individual contribution to the development of the IG ecosystem is often overlooked by thematic discussions. At the same time, with this dialogue, we want to make a strong focus both on speakers’ success stories and their vision of the future trends in IG.

The conversation will focus on how the unique journeys of our guests inform their thinking about the profession, the community development, the solutions they create, and where the industry is going next. Making a difference is always about improving your surrounding and creating opportunities for the development of local communities along with your personal growth. Our guest speakers succeeded in both.
