Comments/Ideas/suggestions from the Remote participation session.

- in this years' IGF , remote participation has clearly garnered momentum...remote participation can take place even without using Webex or internet you can remotely participate even using your phone..

- the remote participation is about inclusivesness....the big question is what are the challenges???

- how much can the remote participants be included?...who do we give priority to? the person here in the physical or that person attending remotely?

- there are some advantages to remote participation- you can watch two rooms @ the same time, switch rooms

whenever you want to .....unlike the physical presence...issues: can the remote participation be built into the

IGF process....some countries have issues with security and online security...how can trust be built for understanding of the remote participation.

- equality of participants in the remote hubs, the regional events...ensuring that there is remote participation.

- how do we get all the information to the platform from the remote participants....how do we bring in twitter,

webex..etc...how do you gather all these information together?

- there is normally a political aspect in these events- e.g when one pays for your travel...then your almost

tied to that person and they almost and agenda that they want to push by your presence there....are we looking at a replication of these effects in the remote participation.

- encourage the remote participants to follow the process and participate

action points
- dialogue
- lasting relationship
- multilingual streaming
- capacity buidling
- accesibility of the remote hub.
- the information being picked from remote participation must make sense...for governments/institutions be able
to support the remote hub...it must make sense!
