Call for Topics- 2021 Kenya Internet Governance Forum Kenya’s premier Internet Policy event

The theme for this year’s global IGF is Internet United – The Internet
connecting all its users into one community, – our shared dreams, ideas,
needs and actions are what shapes the Internet of the future!

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Internet has organised our lives to an
extent that we could have never foreseen. This has only confirmed how
precious and valuable the Internet.
