IGF Newcomers Track: IGF Mentors Session

The IGF 2016 Newcomers Track aims to help participants attending the IGF annual meeting for the first time, to understanding the IGF processes and to foster the integration of all new-coming stakeholders into the IGF community. 

Its focus is to make the meeting participant's first IGF experience as productive and welcoming as possible. 

This session will serve for the first-time coming participants to speak to some of the key IGF stakeholders about the history of the IGF, its ongoing processes and community engagement.

Most of the time will be reserved for the participants attending for the first time, to ask anything they would like to ask about the IGF.
