To: MAG-public <Igfmaglist at intgovforum.org>


Dear MAG colleagues



The UN Secretary-General’s Roadmap on Digital Cooperation - a follow-up to
last year’s HLPDC recommendations - will be launched in a series of events
beginning this Thursday 11th June.



The Roadmap will be announced tomorrow (Thursday) at a High-level Thematic
Debate of the UN General Assembly. The session is at 14:00-17:00 UTC. This
will be followed by four other launch events (in addition to the Q&A
session during the MAG Open Consultations on 16th June).



I have provided summary details of all five launch events below. Detailed
info can be found in the two attached pdfs, one with the agendas, one with
confirmed speakers for events 2, 3 and 4 as of yesterday. Events 3 and 4
focus on different areas of the Roadmaps and the third column in the table
below indicates when various policy teams might want to particularly be
tuned in.



The events are all virtual, open to the public and will be broadcast on UN
Web TV at http://webtv.un.org/live/
