Good to know: NetMission Ambassadors Program

| No TrackBacks
Introduction

The NetMission Ambassadors (NetMission.Asia) program aims to bring together a network of dedicated young volunteers devoted towards promoting and contributing towards digital inclusion, Internet governance as well as a respectable and harmonious Internet environment. The program will recruit and select 20 - 25 Young NetMission Ambassadors every year, who will take part in a comprehensive training program including seminars, workshops, site visits and exchange program around Asia to participate in related national and international events.

The Internet has become a mainstream media and a critical infrastructure for business. Adoption and development of the Internet has the potential to dramatically transform and improve people's quality of life, bring new opportunities in education, employment and socio-economic development. However, the gap between the "haves" and "have-nots" is widening rapidly. This digital divide problem is emerging as a major social development and poverty alleviation concern for modern society. The NetMission Ambassadors program will train and nurture a network of volunteers to contribute to digital inclusion works.

23 Ambassadors were born!


After a series of interviews and evaluation of individual proposals, 23 NetMission Ambassadors were chosen from about 100 applicants among top Universities in Hong Kong. The selected NetMission Ambassadors will go through a series of training, exchange tours and workshops in the coming months. Thereupon, they will be tasked to design and implement 2 community projects on their own to address the issues surrounding digital divide, Internet governance and harmony on the Internet.
