LOS ANGELES - The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announces a new initiative to introduce newcomers to ICANN and to the important role it plays in the Internet ecosystem, a press release stated by ICANN.

The ICANN for Beginners Virtual Program comprises a series of interactive webinars held via Zoom and will provide participants an overview of the global Internet ecosystem. The program will also guide newcomers on how they can join the global community and help shape Internet governance.

Tailored to those new to ICANN and held fully virtually, each of the one-hour webinars will focus on a specific topic of interest. The webinars will be moderated by experienced ICANN staff members with the goal to strengthen the knowledge about and foster participation at ICANN. The newcomers will come away with a better understanding of how the Internet works and importance of keeping the Internet open, free, and safe for all.

Participation in the program's webinars will complement ICANN's other newcomer programs, such as the Fellowship Program and NextGen@ICANN Program.

How to participate:
Participating is easy, free, and open to all. No prior technical or Internet governance experience is necessary. The first webinar "ICANN for Beginners: An Introduction" will be held during two time slots (you only need to register for one of the webinars):

  • 2 November 2022 at 1400 UTC
    3 November 2022 at 0600 UTC
  • Closing date for registration: 1 November 2022. The webinars are in English only.
