 IGF 2016 Main Session Planning 

DCs jointly organized a main session for the first time at IGF 2015 in João Pessoa, Brazil. Through discussions in the DC Coordination meetings that followed, members of coalitions decided to request space for another main session in 2016. The MAG granted the request and DCs have continued to meet virtually, in the context of their regular coordination meetings, to brainstorm and agree on substantive materials to be produced ahead of the session. The progress on main session planning can be tracked in the DC Coordination meeting summaries as well as in the editable 'IGF 2016 Planning Document' below. 

Main session organization is facilitated by Avri Doria and Markus Kummer. For further information, please contact Eleonora Mazzucchi at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

DC Coordination ('DCCG') Meetings

These meetings have been held regularly since the 10th IGF in Brazil, one month or three weeks apart. As the coordination work focuses more on main session planning for IGF 2016, the meetings may increase in frequency.
