Dear Juan, colleagues,

In my opinion, the meaning "to give form" is correct. In Spanish it should be read as "Da forma a tu futuro digital", as an imperative form.

All the best,
Israel

Dear Lynn, Chengetai and MAG Colleagues:

First of all, I want to express my satisfaction for sharing with you a productive meeting.

Regarding the proposed title I want to point out the following:

The IGF title should be understandable in many languages (ideally in all).

I am having difficulties translating to Spanish the proposed title: "Shape Your Digital Future!".

The problem is with the word "shape", because it has several meanings in Spanish (as in English) but the acceptation that applies here: "to give form" is not the most used in Spanish.

Maybe something similar happens in other languages.

So I suggest that the Secretariat consult with the very capable interpreters that work for the UNOG in Geneva and try, either to confirm that the word "shape" is OK, in the sense that it conveys the intended meaning in the majority of languages, or if not, to propose a replacement.

Best regards

Juan

I find the "place" word very useful in order to engage, I would suggest "space" also, but I am happy what the title we have.

I like this as well, but perhaps we can shorten it to:

IGF Geneva 2018 -- Shaping your digital future

sorry forgot the "place".

So it should read:

IGF Geneva 2017 - a place to shape your digital future!
