DiploFoundation is a member of the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG), and I (Ginger) represent Diplo (you) in this group.
We have been asked for input into the selection of Civil Society representatives for the closing session of the IGF2014 in Istanbul. The time is short: recommendations must be made by 23:00 UTC Thursday August 21, after which the CSWG will select candidates to be submitted to the IGF Secretariat.
Candidates must be present at the IGF 2014 in Istanbul.
Candidates must represent civil society, and should have the qualities that embody the best of civil society, and a broad representation of civil society, especially an understanding of the issues of unheard voices and minorities.
These short words traditionally include the appropriate appreciation, but also offer an opportunity to make a point or two about civil society concerns, so our chosen speaker must have an excellent composition and speaking skills.
Please post your suggestions here after confirming that 1. the candidate will be in Istanbul, and 2. is willing to speak. Self-nominations are fine. Due to the short time available, I will present all recommended names to the CSCG, so please consider your recommendation carefully before posting.
Do feel free to +1 to show support for a candidate after their name is suggested.
Warm wishes to all,
