IGF 2015 has begun - what do YOU want to achieve? Input requested on overarching theme and sub-themes

Hi everybody,

As a new MAG member, the Open Consultation and MAG meetings in Geneva last week were very exciting for me. One very important point brought out in our discussions, is that the IGF 2015 should be organised in a bottom-up way, with sufficient consultation with the IG community. We decided that consulting YOU about the overarching theme and sub-themes for the IGF in Brazil was very important. Please respond to the call for participation - think about it seriously, join the discussion list and then send an email with your suggestions and support to the mailing list. Your voice should be heard!

The Secretariat has posted he following call on the IGF Web Portals main page :

Call for participation in defining the IGF 2015 overarching theme and sub-themes

During the December Open Consultations and MAG meeting, discussions were initiated on defining the IGF 2015 overarching theme and sub-themes. A number of proposals for both the overarching theme and sub-themes were made during the meeting and discussions now continue via a dedicated mailing list -igf2015_themes@intgovforum.org.

Stakeholders are invited to join this mailing list and to express their support for some of the already proposed themes, to suggest revisions to these themes or to propose new themes. The deadline for such contributions is 31 December 2014.

Cheers to all,
