What's in store for IGF 2019? The five-day meeting, themed One World. One Net. One Vision, includes a large number of workshops, open forums, dynamic coalition meetings, outputs of intersessional activities, and other events that will give participants the opportunity to engage in open discussions on multiple Internet governance and digital policy issues. National and regional IGF initiatives (NRIs) will share experiences and discuss about their specificities, challenges, and plans for the future. Several main sessions will also be part of the programme; the main themes this year are data governance; digital inclusion; and safety, security, stability and resilience.
