NYIGF Campus Meetup – University of Lagos, Lagos State

On 20 July 2019, we hosted a 1-hour meetup for the second year students from the Faculty of Engineering and Department of Computer Science, University of Lagos, Lagos State.

The theme of our meetup discussion was titled; “What is Internet Governance?”. In an interactive presentation session, the NYIGF Coordinator, Uffa Modey engaged the meetup attendees on the concept of Internet governance and their roles in the development and application of the core┬áprinciples which uphold the global network infrastructure.

At the end of the event, the students were given some NYIGF branded items are encouraged to participate in global Internet governance activities such as public policy meetings in ICANN, open standards development in the IETF, IP resource management with AFRINIC, advocacy for digital rights, etc.
