Dear Segun,
please consider my readiness to  to volunteer for one or some of the
following activities

   - Outreach to governments (Policy makers)
   - Outreach to intergovernmentals (high level messaging)
   - Outreach to Business Community
   - Outreach to Civil Society communities
   - Outreach to Youth ( I  teach a course on IG at the European college of
   Liberal arts in Belarus and I have a number of students willing "to do
   something about the IGF")
   - Measuring the impact of the WG effort (this is the subject of my
   specific interest).

Best regards,
Marianne Sakalova

> 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

>> 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.
