ICANNWiki Edit-a-Thon
The ICANNWiki Edit-a-thon is a community-centered event that aims to build and improve Internet governance and ICANN-related content for stakeholders across the globe.
At this event, ICANNWiki staff and participants will build articles on Internet governance together. This activity improves stakeholder knowledge, increasing confidence in their work and empowering stakeholders to deepen their commitment to the task of managing a safe and secure Internet.
Our aim in hosting these events is to democratize access to this information, shine a light on it and, if possible, translate it into a variety of languages other than English for a stronger, more empowered, global community.

ICANN Budget Basics
For ICANN Organization to appropriately plan and budget for the future, input and participation by all community stakeholders is essential. However, ICANN’s budgets and planning activities can be complex and overwhelming for someone new to the process. In this session, we will help community members understand the basics of ICANN’s budgets and prepare them to effectively participate in planning activities.
Learning objectives: 1. To understand Bylaws requirements and process steps for ICANN budget and planning. 2. To be able to read the components of ICANN planning and budget documents. 3. To provide valuable feedback on plans and budgets during public comments periods.
