Hi Judi, Definitely something to keep in mind for workshops for next year. Just for your information, here are links to some of the events that the DCAD (Dynamic Coalition for Access for Persons with Disabities) carried out in Sharm. You might be interested in joining them now, to participate in activities for IGF 2010.

1. ITU Workshop “Best practices for an Accessible Web” at 4th IGF Meeting

2. ITU Workshop “Global Internet Access for Persons with Disabilities” at 4th IGF Meeting

3. Second Meeting of the Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability (DCAD) 16 November 2009

4. The only webcast related to accessibility available at IGF is the one of the main session on Access and Diversity, which is available at:
This link was set up the IGF organizers.

Information on how to subscribe to the mailing list is available on the web, under the tab "How to participate":

Capacity building and persons with disabilities needs online,.....is yet to be addressed satisfactorily.
Comment by Lillian Nalwoga on December 9, 2009 at 1:55pm
You raise an interesting idea Henry. I am now thinking of how we can engage ICT departments in higher institutions of learning in developing countries to indulge in meaningful participation in IG debates.

I think this is something we need to do in Uganda as we prepare for the 2010 East African IGF. I am also thinking that if the process works well, we will have meaningful participation (remote) from Uganda in the 2010 global IGF. I mean, if the focus in on the 75% as Nadira speculates, then bringing more people on board through remote participation hubs is the way to go.
Comment by Nadira Araj on December 8, 2009 at 3:21pm
A quick note: There must be a focus targeting the 75% who do not use the Internet yet. What about a discussion to reform the education system for early stages? What about imbedding digital media into the foundation of each topic (math, languages, literature, science, etc.)?
Comment by Henry Owera on December 8, 2009 at 2:39pm
Ginger, that is right.

I was only stressing for more levels of organised participations IGF remote hubs or camps - the how many, and where, and what opportunities.

Take Uganda with a number of persons who understand issues IGF.
In Uganda, a colllaboration with the Ministry of ICT, donors, stakeholders, community and distance learning facilities at UMI, FCIT Makerere University, or UICT and effective mobilisation to attend the web cast and make contribution to an IGF session through the institutions and the forum I-Network would go a long way in insuring more, effective and a more inclusive remote participation and contributions.

I thought more publicity, national coordination, facility provisions and mobilisations could go a long way in drawing more persons and contributions to an IGF session through remote participation.
Comment by Subhodeep Kundu on December 7, 2009 at 7:05pm
Ginger has again ignited a spark in the forum by introducing this interesting discussion. I understand that child protection & rural upliftment are the areas which need extensive work & study, and may well deserve to be considered as priorities in IGF10.
