WSIS process set as a goal enhancing the capacity of communities in all regions to develop content in local and/or indigenous languages. Greater capacity for content creation will increase the diversity of language content available online, drive more people to use broadband technologies and expand the ability of all communities to participate in the Information Society. Greater engagement with broadband and the Information Society will in turn improve the geographic and multilingual diversity of voices as a whole and the ability of all communities to participate in Internet governance.
This capacity building session will highlight some programs training the content creators of tomorrow and provide valuable lessons learned from content creators from around the globe to the benefit of a wide variety of IGF stakeholders. The session will provide a chance to learn what policies and strategies promote creative industries and contribute to the health of the Internet governance ecosystem as well as learn from the practical experience of practitioners in the field.
