Dear Sumon,

absolutely,  I think we should go even further afield - to organizations/individuals with relevant interests but not regular IGFers…. we are working to address questions that affect everyone.

Best,
Lynn

The WG suggested using common IGF TAGS, and the Secretariat suggested the top 20 TAGS (see poll for listing), specifically  “the list of top 20 tags was sourced from all our workshop proposals (not just those selected) received this year, in order of popularity.  These are the 20 most popular out of 152 different tags, sourced from 268 proposals, so the pool is quite representative and large (relatively speaking - in an IGF context!). Scanning the list quickly, it offers a good balance of topics, including some 'frontier issues' like AI, Big Data and IoT, which we saw a major spike in this year. “

>> Dear colleagues, 
>> 
>> Please find below a proposed poll that the WG: Multi-year Strategic Work Plan believes would be valuable to launch during the upcoming IGF.   This is the work product of the WG: Multi-year Strategic Work Plan. It was considerably improved by poll experts from the European Broadcasting Union who donated their time following a request for expert review.  Everyone has worked hard to ensure an unbiased poll.  The purpose is to get input on the timely questions the IGF community — and hopefully well beyond the IGF community — believes should be addressed in the IGF.
>> 
>> I would like to encourage those MAG members who were part of this WG to add any additional reflections.   While this poll was suggested some months ago, like many things it has only come together very recently and certainly the pace has not been ideal.
>> 
>> The WG is sending this to the MAG for review, and hopefully support to launch during the Geneva IGF.
>> 
>> From my perspective as a longstanding IGF participant (and NOT as Chair), I think this poll could be very helpful, and I believe it is a good start.  We can always improve - but let’s not make perfection the enemy of the good.     Time is of the essence and so please could you signal your position ASAP:
>> 
>> Support Launching at IGF Geneva _____
>> 
>> - DO NOT support launching at IGF Geneva  (pleas give an indication of your rationale or concern)._____
>> 
>> Also, please note this is a poll, it is not a vote.   It should inform MAG deliberations. The results will be sent to the MAG and published online for full community review.
>> 
>> Thanks in advance for your quick review.  There are a few implementation comments still inserted in the attached document, and the best approach this will be determined by the IGF Secretariat.
>> 
>> I appreciate the busy time we are all in but it would be very helpful to have your inputs by Saturday COB CET.
>> 
>> Best and thank you,
