ICANN creates Global Indigenous Ambassador Programme

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has created a Global Indigenous Ambassador Programme (GIAP), reports ITRealms.

The programme, ITRealms gathered was established with two Indigenous Ambassadors, to be selected from underrepresented indigenous communities.

ICANN said that through the inclusion of a broader and more diverse base of knowledgeable constituents, it would be better equipped to support the next generation of the global Internet community.

"This is an exciting opportunity for two Indigenous Ambassadors to learn about ICANN and the At-Large community, representing the best interests of Internet end users," states Loris Taylor, President & CEO, Native Public Media.

ITRealms also reports that ICANN is now accepting applications for two Global Indigenous Ambassadors.

Applicants, ICANN said, must be members of unserved or underserved tribal or native communities and meet the ICANN Fellowship Program criteria[icann.org.

Selected participants will receive travel, hotel, and per diem for the ICANN60 Conference in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to be held 28 October – 3 November 2017, while deadline for submitting applications is 6 July 2017.
