Dear Segun,
I am ready to volunteer for any of the following activities mainly for the Arab region
   
   - 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)

Regarding the IGF Resource Center, does that include a database of participants in the IGF forums? an address book in which any participant can find  details (country, stakeholder group, contact info, a short biography, a picture...) of other participant whether a speaker or MAG member or even another attendant of a workshop to follow-up on some  subjects or mutual interests. Zeina BOUHARB

Thanks, Segun,I am very interested in theset two areas, and am willing to coordinate if needed: ---Online Outreach & remote participants---Outreach to underserved communities (Youth, women, and person with disabilities)
Segun, note that today, 1 July, is the deadline for input to the IGF Retreat. Because we did not have time to follow Marilyn's requested steps for developing a consensus document, and I was not clear what needed to be addressed, I sent my input as an individual contribution. 
I think we can continue to look for agreement on moving forward on these steps, as there seems to be general support in this direction. 
Thanks everyone!Ginger

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 withgeneral consensus of the members on extension of invitation to volunteers fromIG community, I wish to suggest the following sequenced approach.   
   - WG develop the Terms of Reference (ToR) before thenext physical meeting in NY.   

   - Finalise the ToR during a launch meeting of the WG inNY.   

   - Open call for volunteers and their input into the ToRfrom 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 withmembers, then we move forward requesting the secretariat to host the open callfor 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 tohead/coordinate the following work streams which we have identified and fall withinthe scope of the work of the WG. I have also mapped various stakeholders to bereached 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 CivilSociety communities   

   - Outreach to technicalcommunities   

   - Outreach to underserved communities(Youth, women, and person with disabilities)   

   - Outreach to Media/Press (yes, theyare veritable partners in communicating IGF information to the largercommunities)   

   - IGF website improvement ( e.g. wecan build on integrating IGF Resources Center)   

   - Profile of IG relatedupcoming events requiring urgent messaging   

   - Social media, Google+,Twitter, facebook, email activities  Generalawareness raising
   - Measuring the impact of the WG effort 

3. Work Program Calendar:In addition, justlike we did last year, but with modification/call for innovation, we need to develop work program calendarand modify the approach to suit the objective of our communication. Forinstance, we need to identify the following as we move forward;     
   - Different level of messages for different levelof stakeholders     

   - Identifying opportunities for communication/interactions   

   - Determinemodes of our communications – emails, IGF website, e-brochures etc.   

   - IGFcommunity 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.

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.
