Dear all,

Just a quick clarification on the Civil Society Meeting:

On sunday afternoon some of us met to discuss the High-Level Panel on
Digital Cooperation and the feasibility of a Civil Society joint input to
the open consultation the panel has issued. If I am not mistaken, the
meeting was announced on the Best Bits list and was the result of a past
discussion around the organization of a Civil Society Meeting on the same
list. As @Michael Oghia <mike.oghia at gmail.com> mentioned, the draft of
our joint
now open for comments and we would be happy to send you guys a report about
the meeting if its of interest.

Other than that, I am also aware that another Civil Society Meeting was
organized during the IGF (under the name of the CSCG although it wasnt
organized by the committee), but I was not able to attend this one. From
what I gathered from the lists, this second meeting was dedicated to
discussing the Secretariat appointments to the MAG and also the process -
but I dont have any more details than this.

I would also not oppose the idea of an online meeting, we could definitely
use more coordination and I can suggest the idea to CSCG just so we can
better coordinate between the groups. Aiming for next week or a date in two
weeks time would also be better as some of us might be attending the FOC
this week.

Last but not least, if we are to organize such meeting, what would be
possible agenda items - maybe MAG and HLPDC could be some of them.
