Thank you Minda, 

The IRPC contributions look terrific and the flyer is extremely attractive. 

Sadly, I won't be there, but in spirit, and plan on participating remotely. 

All best,

Dear all

This email is to let you all know that the coalition has an exciting, and busy program of contributions to the upcoming IGF meeting in Paris 12-14th November.

Minda will follow up with the full details as these are currently being finalized but as a taster, the IRPC will be hosting, with other partners;

- A session on Rights, Internet governance, and the Environment (Built and Natural); here we aim to establish an agenda going forward. Join us, and others from local governments such as the city of Amsterdam, Barcelona, and New York along with representatives from Pacific Island nations and civil society groups addressing the toxicity, and rights implications of cloud-based services and computer manufacture. \

- A session, continuing our work putting refugee rights and internet governance into these policy discussions, on refugees, rights, and the online environment where Amnesty international and government representatives will participate

- A flash session - just announced - on Human rights and Emerging Technologies.

_ And, we can welcome all of you to our very own booth at the IGF. You will not be able to miss that booth as we will be festooning it with the Charter Booklet and Coalition colours.

IF you plan to be there, in person or remotely, please do not forget to register by the end of this week; 3rd November.

More details to follow.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes
