Released in June 2014 in London, this award program is looking to appreciate long-term community members with leadership roles throughout time in several ICANN working committees or groups, and proved collaboration with various Advisory Committees and/or Supporting Organizations.
Only CANN participants who have truly made an effort in consensus-based solutions, admitting the relevance of ICANN’s multistakeholder type of Internet governance, and cooperate in a particular way to raise the interest of ICANN’s organization and its community, are appreciated and recognized for the Multistakeholder Ethos Award.
