> I have worked on "Building digital literacy amongst rural communities in
> Chhattisgarh".

> policy and program development" as a Youth representative. It was organized

> years, I have been actively working on empowering youth for a sustainable
> digital future. My role is largely to

> IRPC brings together brilliant and diverse minds. I for one, am
> comparatively new to this domain and have a lot to learn from experts and
> peers. Here’s my humble outline for the vision that aligns with IRPC
> objectives -
> My vision is guided by the 17th SDG which is to “enhance the use of
> enabling technology, in particular ICT” (Target 17.8)
> I comprehend it as a call to bridge the digital divide and the Global
> North, and South through commitments and policies. The onus of this
> commitment doesn't fall upon a certain generation but on everyone who
> believes in an equal, transparent, and accessible internet. I
> believe this could be achieved via developing inter-generational dialogues
> and enhancing outreach to engage relevant actors.
> Thank you all for your time and kind consideration, I sincerely appreciate
> it.
> The elections will be open for *two weeks* starting today, *19 February*.
> IRPC list members will endorse nominees using an anonymised online polling
> tool which will be reaching your email inboxes later today.
> Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
> Best wishes,
> Minda
