Joining IG 2016 online -- starting now -- make your voice heard in two important projects

Hi everybody, and welcome to 2016 on personal, professional and IG levels! We have a busy year ahead, and a lot of interesting and important things to do.

Are you preparing to improve your online engagement in IG? We are starting the year with a valuable conference to share how to improve our online interactions in IG policy, especially with Geneva, the main hub for IG policy. 

Check out the Geneva Engage Conference, 27-28 January, especially the information about online participation. Please also take the survey, so your data are included in our analyses. I will be attending online, coordinating and assisting your involvement. Please post your questions and suggestions here, or to me personally. Can we coordinate an online Diplo hub, either in Google Hangout or Skype? Let me know here if you'd like to join us. 

Or would you like to organise your own hub, at your university, or with your local organisation? That is a very effective way to attend a conference online, to make the most of discussions for both the global community, and your specific goals and objectives for 2016. I can help with this too.

In another very important online process, the IGF Secretariat has issued this  call for contributions taking stock of the IGF2015 meeting and looking ahead to the IGFmeeting. Please think about making a group/small group/individual submission. Your input to this process is very important, especially right now, as the process begins. The contributions will be synthesized into a synthesis paper which will act as an input to the next Open Consultations and MAG meeting (dates TBA soon). The deadline for submitting contributions is 12 February 2016 to igfcallforinputs2016@intgovforum.org. If I can assist in any way, let me know. From my own personal experience, and as a current MAG member, I can tell you that all contributions, even individual ones, are carefully read and taken into account.

You/we can make a difference. Don't ever stop believing that. These are two important tools for change. Please join me/us. 
I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Ginger
