What the is GII Junior Summit?
The GII Junior Summit ’95 is a revolutionary event for children in the field of communication networking. This idea was first brought up at the “G7 Information Communication Ministerial Roundtable” held in Belgium in February 1995. It was organized by a group of representatives from government and business firms. The group was founded to support the GII, and it organized an office called Secretariat Junior Summit ’95 exclusively for this program in Tokyo, Japan on a non-commercial basis.
The Goals of the Summit
Considering the rapid advance of computer and communication technologies, communication networking will become an essential element of the global information society to come. The GII Junior Summit will help both parents and their teenage children realize the importance of communication networks. It will also help schools promote networking education so that the GII will be expedited.
