Hi all

Thanks again to those who joined the call yesterday.  We had Marianne, Shaila, Johan, Wolfgang and me.

We agreed on the agenda for our INTERNAL BUSINESS MEETING.  That will be on TUESDAY 14th Sept at 14.00 in ROOM 8.  There will be remote participation via the IGF website.  For those in Vilnius, please grab your lunch beforehand, and then come to the meeting at 14.00.  We'll be discussing our strategy for the coalition and for the Charter - it's important that as many people join as possible so please come along!

The main topic of conversation was our workshop at the IGF ( WEDNESDAY 15th Sept, 9.00).  We refined the agenda that I sent through before - I've pasted the new version below.  We agreed there was a lot to cram into the session - we'll see how we progress and may have to chop some items off if we don't have time.  We agreed it would be really nice to have as many people speaking out from the coalition during the workshop as possible...in particular, we need people to give very short introductions to the different topics:

-          Background and history of the coalition

-          The background to the Charter

-          How we plan to take it forward

-          A2K and copyright

-          Privacy

-          Mobile internet

-          If we have time: whether there's a right to access.

Please let me know if you'd like to take the lead with any of these subjects, or if you know good experts that we can invite to discuss.

We also discussed the possibility to hold a further meeting towards the end of the IGF to collect final inputs on the Charter and to debrief each other.  We'll confirm that at the business meeting.

I've drafted a flyer for  our workshop (attached).  Please let me know if you'd like to make any changes to it by this time tomorrow, at which point I'd encourage everyone to send it far and wide.

Really looking forward to what should be an exciting and productive IGF!

All the best
