BREAKOUT GROUP TASKS: AGREE ON A FACILITATOR AND RAPPORTEUR 1.                                                            

1. The goal of the preparatory phase is two-fold: outreach to maximise
inclusivity and participation in the IGF (e.g. with sessions in different
languages and time zones) and, to help achieve the goal of a more
focused and impactful IGF with specific issues discussed in greater
depth. Keeping this goal in mind

- What do you like about the prep phase?

- What would you change, and how?

- Any other suggestions.

2. MAG members need to work in issue teams for the next phase of their
work which involves organising sessions that form part of the
preparatory phase, and leading into main and / or concluding sessions at
the annual forum in Katowice. The idea is that these teams are led by
MAG members, but are open to others in the IGF community, particularly
but not only from NRIs, BPFs, DCs, PNs. Please refer to the draft issue
teams TOR

- What do you feel is the best way of forming these groups? To use the
groups that worked on the initial issue descriptions? To continue in the
workshop evaluation groups? Or, to form new groups
based on interest?

- At what point do you feel these groups should be opened up to people
from outside the MAG? From the outset, or once the MAG members in the
issue team has developed proposals to share and get feedback on?

- Any other comments or questions about this phase of the MAG's work and
on the draft TOR.

* Poll details

For the breakout groups following the plenary on First Day of MAG Meeting, what option do you prefer?

Option 1 - Plenary discussion invites views on the recommendations of the Evaluation Groups and what this could mean for integrating the four sets of recommendations into a single balanced set of approved workshop proposals (e.g. what proportion or number of slots should be allocated to each track). MAG will breakout sessions into their existing Evaluation Groups, with those unable to join the session having a short window to provide comments in writing. The aim of the breakout is for each Evaluation Group to respond to the feedback, e.g. revise the sub-themes, adjust the number or ranking of workshops in the green basket to decide which of that track’s proposals should be approved.

OR

Option 2 - Plenary discussion in principle accepts the recommendations of each Evaluation Group and focuses discussion on how to translate the four sets of Evaluation Group recommendations into a single balanced set of approved workshop proposals. The breakout sessions are a series of MAG discussions (each MAG member tries to join one) which aims to reflect on Plenary discussion and come up with suggestions for the make-up of the final set of approved workshop proposals. Members will be clustered into breakout groups according to regions/timezones. Each group has to agree on 3 or 4 sets of suggestions which will then be presented to the Plenary on Day 2, possibly with the Chair proposing a way forward that reflects the proposals received.
