Begun, also, Anja is attending the ICANN57, as is Lynn St Amour,  MAG Chair.


We have a special NRI networking event - now our fourth... @ICANN....

 I will also be continuing in my organizing role for this event and will give brief welcoming remarks.

If you are attending ICANN57 and are affiliated with an NRI, please email me and Anja, off list.


This is an  NRI event/ and we want to be sure we get invitations to all NRI coordinators and colleagues.  I think we have covered all, but just in case...


email me and Anja off list if you are attending ICANN57 and are a coordinator or otherwise affiliated with an NRI.


We will be posting the event location at ICANN57 shortly and want to be sure we are aware of all who want to attend.

Dear Members,

Thanks for responding to the group email.

I can assure you Anja would send doodle poll next week for the meeting. It’s quite interesting receiving feedback from Renata and Elizabeth. Good to note that we’re working.

Renata I agree with you on the point you raised on Knowledge café session. However, the content of such program should reflect strongly on building awareness and constructive knowledge on what IGF stands for and impact to their community. I’m aware many of the IG schools representatives would be on ground as well to impact the KC session.

Our group should be able to contribute to their working template with the appropriate classification of messages to suite various groups. We should note that newcomers would be coming from different stakeholders ’group.  We need generic IGF information for general knowledge diffusion/awareness and specific information tailored to impact specific newcomers’ group. I’m happy Elizabeth is working with newcomers track organisers on the business group.  We can bring this issue for discussion during the meeting.

Elizabeth raises an important awareness on the forthcoming ICANN meeting.  We can further exploit post IANA Transition ICANN meeting (there’s going to be huge celebration during that meeting) to draw the attention of delegates to IGF 2016, need for active participation and communication on strong IGF in a post IANA transition ICANN. Furthermore, perhaps Elizabeth can provide further insight on the information prepared for the newcomers track.

Once again, it is motivating to hear from others as well most especially on social media campaigns and NRIs.


Best Regards.

Segun Olugbile

Dear Segun and colleagues,

Congratulations on the dedicated work being done on this topic. I know there is much happening that we aren't all aware of due to being busy. That has certainly been our case.

So this is a quickly written note to say that we are doing business outreach I just haven’t been able to stop long enough to craft it into the plan you drafted and send it to you.

Next week I will be in New Delhi speaking at a national conference and meeting with local business people, where I will include our messages explaining and encouraging engagement in IGF and the value of doing so for business. Following that I will be in Hyderabad for  ICANN, where staff and local partners have ensured there will be a substantial number of local businesses attending. So all of us there will be able to share the key messages about the IGF in that instance - to the full spectrum of stakeholders.

In addition to setting up a deliberate outreach meeting in India, we've done focused outreach in Mexico through our local partner helping to raise awareness of IGF. We will also host a local digital economy policy dialogue alongside the IGF so that we can encourage local business to come and learn more about it. We are working through the regional network to encourage business participation - but travel budgets are tight and funding is apparently not available beyond MAG members this year so some interested parties have had to decline.

My colleague has reached out to work with the team on the newcomers and we've prepared some information and will have a dedicated programme to help new business participants to the IGF engage and find their way around. Finally, we have initiated cooperation with the Secretariat to support the business community engaged in the NRIs and while that is a longer term project, initial scoping is being done and we are committed to supporting this effort beyond just 2016.

With regard to other venues, as I'm on active and on the B20 Task force on Digitalisation, we will be socialising the topline IG messages there to promote this in the G20 recommendations - it won't be about the IGF event per se but rather reinforce the message about the import of this kind of engagement and cooperation.

Hope this is useful as a quick update.
My best regards and perhaps see some of you at ICANN.
Elizabeth

Hi

I join Wisdom in looking forward to next meeting.

On outreach efforts, I should mention LACNIC/LACNOG in Costa Rica.
It was a fantastic event full of IGF participants and many interested in IGF.
There were many chances to talk about IGF and its BPFs works and I have received emails of participants interested in starting regional BPFs, which seems quite an interesting idea.

Segun, I think it would be  good if we start to think about building the program for the knowledge cafe sessions with the newcomers track organizers. This could help bring key organizations into IGF.

See you all soon
