The Internet Society (ISOC) is happy to announce a new programme
beginning in 2010: the ISOC Next Generation Leaders (NGL) programme. The
NGL was officially launched 6 October 2009 at a youth forum lunch during
the ITU Telecom World week in Geneva.  The programme is aimed at
emerging talents across the globe, between the ages of 20 and 40, and is
a unique blend of coursework and practical experience to help prepare
young professionals from around the world to become the next generation
of Internet technology, policy, and business leaders.

Programme entrants will complete a tailored eLearning course, covering
the essential topics required for effective interactions and
relationships within the Internet ecosystem, as well as key concepts and
emerging issues in Internet governance.  They will be encouraged to
apply for the Internet Society’s representation programmes, such as ISOC
Ambassadorships to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), the World Bank,
and OECD, and the ISOC Fellowship to the Internet Engineering Task Force

At the end of the programme, all Next Generation Leaders programme
graduates will be invited to submit a proposal for a project focused on
an Internet development issue within their own communities. Of those,
three projects will be chosen and the respective project leaders will be
invited to Geneva for a final, one-week course in Internet diplomacy.
The three project leaders will be recognized as the Next Generation
Leaders programme laureates, rewarded with special opportunities to
network with some of the Internet’s most respected leaders and to
participate in special leadership events, and they may be encouraged to
start new Internet Society Chapters in their communities.
