Workshop Theme: 

Jack is 16 and comes from Devon in the UK. He is part of Childnet International’s Youth IGF Project. Jack attended the IGF in Nairobi 2011 sitting on a number of panels and sharing his thoughts on Internet Governance as it impacts on him and his peers.
He said “The internet can easily connect the world together and all countries across the globe can begin developing their communities but the first step is the hardest – educating the world to the positive impact and advantages that the internet provides.” “Facebook and Twitter allow me to share my thoughts and feelings online with others but I have a definitive line between the virtual world and the real world – they should not merge and you should be the same person in both. The information shown in a status online cannot reflect to a person entirely.”
