>> 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

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.
