Nominations for the IGF Planning Retreat

May 24, 2016 (updated May 27).

In view of the UN having extended their deadline for nominations, CSCG will be able to accept nominations until COB next Tuesday (May 31).

Civil society candidates seeking CSCG endorsement should, in addition to completing the form on the IGF website, also send an email to informing CSCG of your nomination and a brief statement outlining why you are a suitable civil society representative for this planning retreat.

CSCG will make its recommendations taking into account the contribution nominees can make, as well as gender, geographic and political diversity.

Various concerns have been raised about the proposed IGF planning retreat, but we do believe that it is nevertheless important to select a diverse and representative group of civil society attendees for this retreat, and will do the best possible in the limited time available to achieve this.
