The Youth IGF aims to give the opportunity of equal multi-stakeholder participation in the building process of the Information Society to teenagers and young people from different countries of the world.
The main goal is to allow the voice of young people to be heard by Information Society leaders on the issues related to Internet Governance and to help young people to take an active part in the decision-making processes.
Particular attention is paid to the participation of young people from vulnerable groups and those with fewer opportunities for better social inclusion.
The Youth IGF reinforces active citizenship in young people and participates in the development of intercultural and intergenerational dialogues. The Youth IGF is an initiative developed by TaC-Together against Cybercrime International, French Youth and its partners. The Youth IGF initiative was conceived during the First French Youth and Teenagers IGF, which took place in France in 2011.
Today, Yuliya leads non-profit organisation TaC-Together against Cybercrime International, which works on the empowerment of users in the field of safe and responsible Internet, child online protection and the Internet Governance issues.
She regularly advises governments and private sector entities on cybersecurity strategies.
