Dear all,




I want to thank everyone for very useful comments and contributions.




Please take time to carefully review - make input, and introduce innovation - the following submission based on our discussions so far, and suggestions
from the outcome of MAG virtual meeting.




1. On WG Open to IG Community for Volunteers:




Following last year precedence and in line with general consensus of the members
on extension of invitation to volunteers from IG community, I wish to suggest
the following sequenced approach.



 * WG develop the Terms of Reference (ToR) before the next physical meeting in
   NY.
   
 * Finalise the ToR during a launch meeting of the WG in NY.
   
 * Open call for volunteers and their input into the ToR from IG community
   within timeline (2wks after the MAG physical meeting in NY), with opportunity
   to improve the ToR with the volunteers.
   



Please make comment and if this is ok with members, then we move forward requesting the secretariat
to host the open call for volunteers and with access to the ToR for comment on
the IGF website after our meeting in NY.



2. Suggestions on the Workstreams:



I need MAG members to volunteer to head/coordinate the following work streams
which we have identified and fall within the scope of the work of the WG. I have
also mapped various stakeholders to be reached to enhance a more focused
communication.





 * Online Outreach & remote participants
   
 * Outreach to governments (Policy makers)
   
 * Outreach to intergovernmentals (high level messaging)
   
 * Outreach to Business Community
   
 * Outreach to Civil Society communities
   
 * Outreach to technical communities
   
 * Outreach to underserved communities (Youth, women, and person with
   disabilities)
   
 * Outreach to Media/Press (yes, they are veritable partners in communicating
   IGF information to the larger communities)
   
 * IGF website improvement ( e.g. we can build on integrating IGF Resources
   Center)
   
 * Profile of IG related upcoming events requiring urgent messaging
   
 * Social media, Google+, Twitter, facebook, email activities General awareness
   raising
 * Measuring the impact of the WG effort




3. Work Program Calendar:

In addition, just like we did last year, but with modification/call for innovation, we need
to develop work program calendar and modify the approach to suit the objective of our communication. For instance,
we need to identify the following as we move forward;





 * Different level of messages for different level of stakeholders
   
 * Identifying opportunities for communication/interactions
   
 * Determine modes of our communications – emails, IGF website, e-brochures etc.
   
 * IGF community blogging
   



4. WG Response to IGF Retreat
It is imperative that the WG provides a cohesive input into the IGF retreat. We
should improve on the Ginger's draft input before 5th July. Please let's take
advantage of the weekend to work this draft document.
5. IGF Website Improvement
In the above workstream above I have proposed for buiding and integration of IGF
Resource Center (IRC). The IRC will provide the much needed resources for
learning, informing and engaging the entire IGF community. We can learn from the
success of UN GAID community engagement .
(for ref only; Global Alliance for Information and Communication Technologies
and Development ( GAID ), an initiative by now former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to promote the
effective use of ICT for development, with the aim of coming together around ICT to promote the achievement of the
internationally agreed development goals in partnership with all other
stakeholders from government, business and civil society).
Similary, IGF- IRC can provides a common interaction platform for the IGF
community and other stakeholders to contribute to global Internet governance
goals.
Best Regards
Segun Olugbile

Thank you Ginger for this thoughtful input.

I hope leading up to the retreat and at the event itself we can build on the
foundation that you present here to discuss the platform of the IGF website as
both a community resource to help people ?identify themselves in the picture? ?
be it as local initiatives, youth or people with disabilities who are included
in the consideration.

The IGF site is most certainly an essential pillar in the communication strategy
so this warrants further reflection and discussion. Thank you for putting it
down and sharing it for the rest of us to reflect on.

Cheers, Elizabeth

Thanks Segun, and everyone.

Segun, I am proposing a very short, concise input. My current draft is pasted
here. I welcome any comments / suggestions / feedback.

I think Marilyn is probably correct, that it is too short a timeframe to agree
on a common document from the WG, but I welcome any comments or suggestions to
improve my input, and am happy to add anyone's name, if they would like to join
me in this contribution.

Marilyn, others, does that work for you? Feel free to respond here, or privately
to me. I look forward to working with all of you on these issues.

DRAFT:

MAG representation is based on stakeholder group and regional representation.
While this works very well, it is not perfect and does not include a few
cross-cutting issue groups, such as persons with disabilities, youth priority
groups, and online participants.

It is not realistic to include issue representatives as exceptions, because
there are simply too many important issues. I do however request that
accommodation be made to ensure that special groups have a designated channel of
communication so that these concerns are heard appropriately. Right now, the MAG
Working Group on Communication and Outreach is giving these issues high
priority, but the IGF organization should institutionalise the processes to
include these groups as part of integral IGF strategies.
Among other things:
? DCAD guidelines< 
http://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/accessibility/dcad/Documents/IGF%202015%20DCAD%20Accessibility%20Guidelines%20-%20Final%20V8.docx > should be adhered to as a fundamental part of IGF design.
? Remote participation principles< http://www.giplatform.org/resources/e-participation-principles > should be adopted or adapted for in IGF processes.
? A clear process for accepting contributions on specific issue areas should be
established.
? A permanent webpage with IGF resources and information for persons for
disabilities should be part of the IGF website, to make all information
available in one place.
? A permanent webpage with online IGF participation resources, statistics, and
information should be part of the IGF website, to make all information available
in one place.
? A permanent webpage for youth news or other resources and possibilities should
be considered to improve outreach with youth groups.

Dear Members,

Thank you for subscribing to the mailing list.

I'm working on a simple guide/work plan on the sharing of roles in line with our
respective areas of experiences. I'll soon post the document to list.

Meanwhile, I support Ginger's suggestion on the WG submitting input to the
retreat. Perhaps, Ginger can go ahead to develop a draft document for the group
consideration and contributions. Improving IGF Comm & Outreach is as critically
essential as the IGF. This idea is greatly welcomed.

Best Regards.

Segun Olugbile

Ginger, as this is a very new WG, perhaps instead we can encourage individual
comments, and then later ask the WG to consider.

I support the need to have the issues that you raise, but taking time to
generate consensus, when this is a very new WG, might be a delay, given the July
1 deadline.

Just a thought. for instance. anyone who submits could then resubmit to this WG,
for further discussion
but not miss deadline for comment.

Thanks, Segun, I'm ready to move forward on this.

1. I think non-MAG members are normally allowed/invited to join WG, and that
this is important for transparency and inclusion of a wider community.

2. I am thinking of personally submitting input to the upcoming retreat, about
the need for greater inclusion and outreach for my constant concerns of online
participation, youth and persons with disabilities. What do people here think
about the WG submitting input to the retreat? Is it too short a time frame to
discuss?

Thanks! Ginger

Dear Everyone,


Thanks for joining the WG. I believe together we can make best use of our
collective potentials to move this WG forward such that will impact IGF 2016
positively.



I think it is important we start discussion and agree on the following items
(PLEASE BE FREE TO ADD MORE);



i. Terms of reference for the WG.

ii. Inclusion of non-MAG members to the group

iii. Development of work plan, identify and prioritize work areas, and then
assign roles within timeline.

I want to suggest we have a virtual meeting of the group before the end of next
week or at least before the next MAG meeting to discuss these items on the list.



If we all agree, I'll send Doodle poll to set the most popular date.



Please note, the objectives and scope of work of the WG may be further expanded
based on the contributions and comments made by the MAG members during the last
virtual meeting. But to be focused and dynamic.



Please let's have your contributions.



I've reattached the approved document again for your consideration.



Best Regards



Segun O.
