[20-Minute Lightning Session]

The South School on Internet Governance is a pioneering capacity building project that has trained more than 1500 students on site and has reached out to more than 30.000 participants online.

All the students recieve a fellowship to participate in the SSIG.

SSIG main mission is to increase the relevant participation of Latin American and Caribbean representatives in debates, forums and participation spaces where the Internet Governance is discussed and where Internet policy processes take place.


The South School on Internet Governance is organized each year in a different country of the Latin American and Caribbean region. Rotation among countries of the region is relevant to involve the local community of the host country and also to allow participants from other countries and faculty members to interact with the community where the School is organized.

· Buenos Aires, Argentina (March 2009)

· Sao Paulo, Brazil (March 2010)

· México DF (April 2011)

· Bogotá, Colombia (March 2012)
