Dear all,

We would like to bring to your attention that UNESCO has launched a 
consultation to prepare for the WSIS+10 Review.

UNESCO has asked us to raise awareness about this process and to share 
this information with our Members. Detailed explanations on the 
consultation and how to contribute are available at the end of this note.

The Internet Society is preparing a contribution and is considering 
proposing that the main theme of the Review be an "Open Internet". We 
would also like to emphasize the need to have a fully multi-stakeholder 
preparatory process, involving all communities. We would very much 
welcome your thoughts and insights on this topic.

Thank you and best regards,

Constance Bommelaer
Director, Public Policy
The Internet Society
