Outreach & Engagement Leading into ICANN62

20 June 2018

As the ICANN community comes together in Panama for ICANN62, the Engagement team is planning a series of events for local stakeholders and with regional partners. ICANN is hosting a LAC-i Roadshow event in collaboration with IPANDETEC on 22 June. Our partners will be hosting the LACTLD Legal and Policy Workshop in Panama from 21-23 June, followed by their 20th anniversary celebration. ICANN org will be supporting training for public safety stakeholders in Panama, conducting a capacity development workshop for Government Advisory Committee members and supporting outreach for Business Constituency members.

Recently, the ICANN Global Stakeholder Engagement (GSE) team supported a visit by ICANN CEO Göran Marby and CTO David Conrad to the Russian Federation. Read more about that trip. The team also participated in many events recently, including Internet Day in El Salvador; CITEL in Peru; the IX Regional Forum in Brazil; LACNIC29 in Panama; the Middle East DNS Forum in Turkey; EuroDIG in Georgia; a law enforcement workshop in Botswana; National ICT Week in Kenya; Transform Africa Summit in Rwanda; FRATEL 2018 in Madagascar; the Global IPv6 Summit in Beijing; NamesCon India; the 24th Internet Governance Conference Japan; and the Kuwait Information Security Conference, among other events. We also participated in DNSSEC workshops in Ankara, Brunei, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Mongolia.

The GSE team represents ICANN org at these events to encourage active participation from diverse stakeholders in ICANN's technical and policy work. Education and outreach is aimed at growing meaningful participation in ICANN from across the global Internet community. We do this through regional partnerships to lower barriers and increase regional engagement in ICANN.

GSE will be participating in a number of sessions at ICANN62. We look forward to seeing the ICANN community in Panama.
