- 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
- 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!
