We are pleased to let you know that the report about remote participation in the IGF Hyderabad is now available online: http://www.igfremote.org/ReportRPIGF-final.pdf.
This report was written by the Remote Participation Working Group, in collaboration with Dimdim. Our aim is to help to strengthen remote participation, as a way to include on the IGF process people that otherwise would not be able to take part on this relevant debate.
The report details the experience of local IGF hubs, which was implemented during the IGF Hyderabad. The hubs are local meetings that exhibit the webcast of the IGF. On the other hand, people present in the hubs can send text and video questions that will be answered by the IGF panelists. Last year there were 9 hubs to the IGF. They took place in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Serbia, Pakistan, India, and three in Spain.
Your region can organize a hub for the IGF 2009. If you are interested, you will find a good starting point on this report. You can also get in touch with us if you have any doubts.
It would be really nice if you could help us, by giving publicity to this report. We are also looking forward to your feedback!
