Thanks Lynn. I think that would be interesting and could be extended also to the break out sessions, so we can not only see to what extent the different stakeholder groups were interested in the three themes, but also the respective interest in the various sub-themes.

Thank you Timea, Susan, Maria, all,

I also think it is important that the introductory and closing sessions mirror each other and believe this process will help develop a coherent picture of IGF activities.

On a related note:  I wonder if we can ask the WS organizers/moderators in each session to do a quick show of hands of which SH group those participating in the session identify with.  We could capture that in rough %.   I recognize that this is not inclusive of those participating online so would appreciate any suggestions on how to include them.   Even a rough assessment would be useful for assessing how multistakeholder any discussion was, as well as what each session attracts in terms of stakeholders.  This could be done immediately after opening comments by the moderator or at the end in the closing comments.  Thoughts?

Lynn

In essence we will need volunteers from each of the thematic evaluation groups to play a role in the organization of the session. If you are new to the MAG or haven’t yet engaged in organizational activities, this is an opportunity to do that during your term.
