The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has announced the individuals selected to participate in the NextGen@ICANN Program at ICANN72. An independent committee selected the NextGen@ICANN72 participants based on their current studies and interest in global policy and Internet governance. It was announced on 15 July 2021 that the ICANN72 Annual General Meeting, originally scheduled to be held in Seattle, United States of America, from 23 to 28 October 2021, will take place as a virtual ICANN Public Meeting due to the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, all NextGen@ICANN program activities for ICANN72 will be held virtually.
The six selectees attend universities in the U.S. region where they study technology, cybersecurity, and law.
