Open call: Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance 2022 (YOUthDIG)

8 February 2022

The Youth Dialogue on Internet Governance (YOUthDIG) is a yearly pre-event to the European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) aimed to foster active youth participation.

During YOUthDIG young people will learn about Internet Governance, and discuss and exchange ideas with experienced internet policy practitioners but also experience peer-to-peer learning and networking with youth residing in Europe. Selected participants will be actively involved by developing policy messages (see Youth Messages 2021) that they will be presenting at EuroDIG but also the global IGF.

The YOUthDIG event will be composed of an online phase with virtual meetings and the physical event. Organisers are working towards a hybrid event and look forward to welcoming participants in Trieste, Italy.

YOUthDIG is held in English. Organisers can provide a number of travel grants to youth participants.


  • Young people (ages 18-30) from the pan-European region with a strong interest in Internet governance, digital policy and cooperation are working together to draft and advocate for the youth messages.
  • 30 young people from all over Europe (Member States of the Council of Europe) will be selected to participate.

Deadline for applications

Applications will close on 10 February 2022.
