Dear friends, 

On Monday, March 2, in Paris, a group of civil society organisations - Global Partners Digital (GPD), Association for Progressive Communications (APC), Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), Internet Democracy Project, and KICTANet – in collaboration with the Internet Society (ISOC), the Centre for Communication Governance at National Law University Delhi, and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) - will be holding a 1-day event focused on the WSIS+10 Overall Review. 

The purpose of the event will be to raise awareness of the review process and to facilitate coordination and strategy development for effective civil society engagement. While principally aimed at coordinating civil society efforts in engaging in the WSIS, part of the event will be dedicated to facilitating cross-community dialogue with representatives from the technical community, the business sector and governments. The event will be held on the margins of UNESCO's CONNECTing the Dots conference.

A briefing note with basic background information about the WSIS and its review can be found here: http://bestbits.net/wsis10-overall-review-briefing-note/. We hope this is useful and welcome any feedback.

To give us an idea of interest for this event among civil society, please let us know if you would be interested in attending by RSVP-ing via this link: http://bestbits.net/events/wsis10-coordination/ Please note that limited funding for civil society from developing countries will be made available. 

A draft agenda and relevant logistical details will be circulated closer to the date. 

If any organisations are interested in helping organise this event please let me know off-list or by replying to this email.

With warm wishes,
