|Describe the Relevance of Your Session to APrIGF|
|The proposed showcase session is extremely relevant to the Access and Inclusion theme of the APrIGF. The proposal's theme is based on the principle of inclusivity advocates that no one is disadvantaged on the basis of their background, location, gender, disability, religion, caste, class or any other factor. It also ensures that emerging technologies like AI, 5G and blockchain provide an enabling platform for everyone to participate, raise their voices and partake in the benefits. The session will provide an avenue to the youth community to take their IG journey forward and become a leader in their own right. The session will showcase the way in which a multistkaeholder model was brought to fruition with focus on providing infrastructure and access to all, in order to enable the use of these emerging technologies for socioeconomic development across the board. This session will ensure to build inclusion and resilience among the youth community to continue on the Internet Governance journey.|
