Joint At-Large & NCSG Outreach Event at ICANN62

Navigating Your Way at ICANN

Not All Superheroes Wear Capes!

TUESDAY, 26 JUNE 2018 09:00 - 12:00 LOCAL TIME (PANAMA CITY)

Salon 9, Conference Center

Building on the success of the joint NCUC-At Large sessions at ICANN58, ICANN60 and ICANN61, this session represents a joint event of the ICANN At-Large community and At-Large Advisory Committee (ALAC) and Non-Commercial Stakeholders Group (NCSG) for local academia, civil society and Internet end users.

Aligned with policy and outreach activity during the ICANN62 Policy Forum in Panama, the agenda is built around policy issues and specific topics. This interactive session aims to help attendees - both newcomers and seasoned community members who want to know more about policy - to get their head in the policy game and to give them real background information on the issues At-Large and the NCSG are working on, and the differences and similarities between NCSG/At-Large positions.
