UNESCO calls for contributions to enrich the online dialogue on its social networking website, “WSIS KC” – UNESCO’s online platform. Your inputs will help shaping the WSIS Forum 2012 to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 14 to 18 May 2012.

What are the key issues that need to be addressed at the WSIS Forum? Is there any room for improvement in terms of efficiency and effectiveness of the Forum?

The fourth edition of the WSIS Forum will take place from 14 to 18 May 2012. Within the framework of its preparatory open consultation process, UNESCO is organizing an online dialogue involving all WSIS stakeholders to discuss about the thematic focus and innovative format of this event. The results of this consultation will feed into the overall agenda of the Forum and help organizers to improve the setup.

You can participate in the dialogue either by replying to a discussion board, or by uploading a video message. It will be opened until 15 January 2012 at the WSIS KC –Knowledge Communities website (www.wsis-community.org).

Please note that a video message can be:

  • recorded by mobile phone, webcam, digital camera, etc.;
  • up to 10 MB in size; and
  • up to 3 minutes in length.

We look forward to your active participation.
