WSIS 2015 started and GDCO Sudan attended Remotely (FIRST DAY)

Yesterday 25th May 2015 the WSIS 2015 forum started in Geneva organized by ITU. Since 2009 GDCO used to participate in WSIS through online consultation preparatory meetings, workshops exhibition, high level debates, interventions and high level policy statement.This year we have our own workshop, a panelist in the Social internet forum, high level policy statement, exhibition and many intervention are expected in ICANN, ISOC, e-Agriculture. However, we couldn`t be there physically due to unexpected matters.

We have remote participation as panelists in Organizing the Social internet forum. In this session a group of organizations that believe in “Another World is Possible” have come together to create an Internet Social Forum that will carry forward the vision of the WSF Charter to the governance of the Internet. We participated fully with comments, chatting and questions in Innovation for development organized by MCIT, Egypt ICT Trust Fund  Monday 25 May, 09:00 – 10:45.

The Innovation for Development workshop was led by high-level representatives to create a cross-cutting dialogue among countries to identify best practices in designing and implementing innovation operations and to learn from successful (and unsuccessful) experiences in speakers’ countries.  The IGF 2015 Preparatory Session is organized by Brazil on Monday 25 May, 16:30 – 18:15 This session focuses on the IGF 2015 and the preparatory process to the event in João Pessoa, Brazil (10-13 November 2015).
