As part of efforts to enhance the awareness of young people regarding internet governance processes, the coordinators of the Youth Coalition on Internet Governance will be launching an Internet Governance practicum at the IGF 2015.
The practicum aims to provide youth with practical experience and will especially be beneficial to young people with little to no knowledge on Internet Governance matters. 

This will be an attempt to come up with a youth declaration on what are their most important concerns in Internet Governance. This will build on the 2014 efforts to come up with a Youth Manifesto on Internet Governance: 

Inclusive and participatory processes for the development of Internet-related policies are essential for a multistakeholder governance approach. Defining modalities acceptable by all stakeholders is one of the main challenges in fullfilling the Tunis Agenda. Therefore, the focus of the workshop is to illustrate in a concrete manner the different processes used in various groups to develop positions, recommendations, and other forms of output, in particular the three early stages of such processes :

Agenda-setting:how is discussion conducted on an initial topic suggestion ? What iterations are used to find a formulation of the issue that is satisfactory for all participants ? How is the decision to launch a more formal process taken ?
Issue-scoping and framing: how are the different dimensions of the issue and relevant stakeholders identified ? Are initial issues papers or background documents developed?
