The main objective of the orientation session is to assist newcomers to engage in and benefit from the IGF. It will address some basic questions such as “what is happening in the meeting?” and explain the basic functioning of the IGF. Beyond this very basic information the session will also inform about the substantive issues the IGF has been dealing with. The session should thus contribute towards creating a common background with regard to the depth and focus of the discussions and maximize participation. The session will also give an overview of the programme.
