AFRALO Outreach & Engagement Strategy FY 19 - Draft

Aim of the Strategy

The FY19 AFRALO strategy for Outreach and Engagement aims at:

  • Reaching out to African end users all over Africa to raise their awareness about the benefit of their involvement in ICANN activities
  • Engaging African end users in ICANN Policy Development Processes (PDP)
  • Promoting the ICANN multi-stakeholder model and its bottom-up decision-making process
  • Explaining how an Internet organization / association may become an AFRALO At-Large Structure (ALS) and how an individual can become an AFRALO member, especially in non-represented African countries

 Strategy plan

To reach the aims of the strategy, AFRALO shall:

  • Make sure at least 5 members of AFRALO are deeply engaged in the ICANN PDP
  • Participate in events across Africa and especially in countries without ALSes to:
    • Make the adequate outreach to bring into ICANN Arena:
      • African Internet organizations and make them interested to become ALSes
      • Non-affiliated African individuals and make them interested to become AFRALO Individual members
    • Make presentations about topics under discussion in ICANN to show how the African ICANN community participate effectively in the ICANN policy discussion
    • Exhibit ICANN structure, information and activity and detail its working methods
  • Organize local events, in partnership with the local ALSes to enhance their engagement and broaden their radiance in their respective countries
  • Continue to identify university and academic institutions to organize fruitful discussions with students and teachers about Internet Governance to bring young people into ICANN
