> Dear all
> As there will be fairly dramatic rotation of civil society
> representatives on the MAG this year (most of us are up for rotation) I
> think it is very important that we submit well-prepared written
> submissions, and that as many of us as possible attend the December
> meetings.
> I would suggest that IRP makes a submission was we need to make sure
> that human rights issues do not slip off the agenda. We need some fixed
> platform for synthesising rights issues at every IGF. The Round Table
> format in my view works very well, but then it is imperative that it is
> not scheduled to conflict with rights related workshops as was the case
> in Istanbul.
> And if both Best Bits and Governance can send inputs that will also be
> good, and of course others too such as Just Net and NCUC.  APC will as
> always do our 'assessment' and use that as a basis for submission.
> The other thing that would be helpful would be for civil society groups
> to have some idea about what theme or themes to support for the next IGF
> Also some specific things to focus on would be:
> 1) The Best Practice Forum mechanism - recommendations, feedback on what
> worked what did not, etc.
> 2) Workshop proposal review process - a constant 'work in progress'
> which still has flaws in my view
> 3) Format of the event - I am going to propose that the IGF makes use of
> the services of someone who specialises in participatory event
> organisation (very good people that we have worked with in the past are
> https://aspirationtech.org/events)
> So just a few thoughts.  If CS groups are going to submit collective
> inputs there is not that much time left to prepare them.

> *Call for Input*
> All stakeholders are invited to submit by *27 October 2014* written
> contributions taking stock of the Istanbul IGF meeting and looking
> forward to the IGF 2015 meeting, including suggestions on the format,
> schedule and themes. The written contributions will be synthesized into
> a paper that will form an input into the Open Consultations and MAG
> meetings of 1-3 December. Please send all contributions
> to takingstock2014 at intgovforum.org
