WSIS Forum Open Consultation Process: First Physical Meeting

The first physical meeting of the Open Consultation Process for the WSIS Forum 2015 will be held on 30 January 2015 at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland. Remote participation facilities will be made available for this meeting. The Open Consultation Process is structured in five phases, with the meeting being Phase II of the process.

The process aims at ensuring the participatory and inclusive spirit of the WSIS Forum 2015, scheduled to be held from 25-29 May 2015 at the ITU Headquarters in Geneva. This process actively engages governments, civil society, the private sector and intergovernmental organizations in the preparatory process and ensures broad ownership and a constant evolution of this Forum. The Agenda and Programme of the WSIS Forum is built on the submissions received from multi-stakeholders during the Open Consultation Process.

ITU, UNESCO, UNCTAD and UNDP invite all WSIS Stakeholders to contribute to the Open Consultation Process on the Thematic Aspects and Innovations on the Format of the WSIS Forum 2015.
