Nnenna, this is a good work. Well done and congratulations on the new deal, may be we should consider appointing you Special Adviser to GEJ on Social Media & Youth Affairs ... no laugh!

Spot on! Deirdre

I have just been contacted by a large multi-state organization that wants to be pro-active in social media. They want to hire me to do social networks coaching for hundred of youth, in preparation for active professional life!

Congratulations! :-) I'm looking forward to reading it.

It seems to me that the common BIG transversal theme at the moment is citizen participation and how to encourage and facilitate it. I heard that as an undercurrent at the 7th Caribbean Internet Governance Forum in Trinidad last week, and also during the Latin America and Caribbean pre-IGF consultation which was part of the same convention. Perhaps I heard it because I had been thinking about the same issue in a local context here in Saint Lucia. :-)

Best wishes
