Anything else you would like to tell us about your school? The school will adopt ICANN Learn and Internet Society Youth IGF Ambassador IG courses. This will be the pre-requisite for all successful applicants. Completion of this stage is what will lead to the selection of the 20 fellows who will attend the in person (with a select few virtual attendees).

The In-Person session will mainly focus on an in-depth look at a few select topics with a specific focus on the Zambian Internet Landscape with a goal of influencing atleast one specific internet linked policy or Internet governance issue, (this will vary each year depending on the chapter focus or prevailing internet governance issue).

Ultimately, the goal is to shape the Zambian Internet Governance Landscape to benefit the future of the internet in Zambia.

Note: Currently, the school has the activity tab url in the chapter activity tab. A tab/page on the school is being developed under the chapter website. It should be up before end of October.
