Participate in the IGF remotely! Will be in Vilnius? Volunteer to be a remote moderator!

I would like to share with you some great news about remote participation in IGF this year. And to invite you to be part of this story.

As you probably know, the Remote Participation Working group has volunteered to work together with the IGF Secretariat in order to improve remote participation options in the IGF. Remote Participation is a very important way
to foster inclusion in processes of global scope, such as the IGF. They allow
not only participation with people who cannot travel and attend the meeting in
person, but they also foster the creation of a local community interested on
Internet Governance issues.

Since 2007, local IGF hubs have been organized all over the world. This year, almost 30 hubs have already registered. The power of such local bottom-up initiatives is huge.

There is one thing still lacking, though: we need volunteers that will be in Vilnius to be remote moderators. Remote moderators are the link between remote attendants and those physically present
in the meeting.

Each main session and workshop organizer has been asked to appoint a remote moderator, but not all of them have successfully found volunteers. The role of the remote moderator is
simple to perform, but highly important: he/she needs to moderate the discussion
of the remote participants in the chat platform (Webex), select the questions
and forward them to the panel speakers.

Will you be in Vilnius? Would you like to be a remote moderator?

Please contact the Remote Participation Working Group: info@igfremote.info.

Will you be in your home city?
Join the IGF remotely!

Besides participating remotely and asking questions through Webex, you can also use social network

For anyone interested in volunteering for remote moderation, a suggestion is to also send a list of the workshops you are already planning to attend, therefore we can check with the slots missing and you can help and pro-actively participate.
