IGF 2020 Theme: Internet for human resilience and solidarity
This year, the IGF will be held online, in two phases.
Phase One, 23 October – 6 November 2020, will include Day Zero events, introductory sessions for the four thematic tracks (Data, Environment, Inclusion and Trust) as well as Open Forums, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Youth IGF initiatives (NRIs), Dynamic Coalition and newcomers sessions.
Phase Two, 9-17 November 2020, will include main sessions, workshops, high level leader sessions and formal opening and closing sessions.
The IGF MAG is still finalising in which phase to schedule Best Practice Forum sessions, music night and the IGF village, as well as a range of other networking sessions.
More information about the virtual IGF schedule is available in the IGF MAG Chair’s July blog post.

In 2020, the Internet Society’s funding commitment to this important work will continue through the Internet Society Foundation’s Internet Governance Forum (IGF) funding programme. For more information visit Foundation’s website.
