You can get involved at any stage of the programme planning process. Our slogan is:
“Always open, always inclusive and never too late to get involved!”
Creating the programme
We try to accommodate all submissions in the EuroDIG agenda, because our concept is not to reject or accept proposals, but bring together people that can contribute to a session from different perspectives. We believe this will truly foster a multistakeholder discussion, both during the session planning process and the EuroDIG event.
The programme is based on the submissions received during the call for issues and the results of the public planning meeting as well as the feedback we received by the European community.
Forming Org Teams
The responsibility for the evolvement of each session is on the Organising Teams (Org Teams). They work in close cooperation with a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and the EuroDIG Secretariat. The composition of the Org Team is the result of merging proposals into sessions. Our aim is to bring together people with different perspectives and foster the multistakeholder dialogue already during the preparation process.
Everyone can join any Org Team simply by subscribing to the respective mailing list we provide for each session on the EuroDIG wiki.
Results and quality of a session depend on inclusive and broad based participation. To maintain transparency and an effective interactive dialogue, we ask everyone to respect the following principles:
- focus on the emerging issues on the European agenda
- avoid duplication or “just more of the same” discussion we already had
- avoid seminar style (not just a series of power point presentations)
- each speaker – 5 min “punchy” statements or provocative questions
- not more than 4-5 key participants – including the (remote) audience as much and early as possible
- (Self-) promotion for speaking slots or “speaker placement” – is not appreciated
- stakeholder balance – considering gender, age and geographical balance
- publish all information about your session on the wiki as soon as possible
Messages are compiled from each session and form the main output of the annual EuroDIG. Find the messages from 2021 here.
Reporter – in 2021 from the Geneva Internet Platform – are assigned to take notes and to formulate 3 (max. 5) bullet points at the end of each session that:
- relate to the particular session and to European Internet governance policy
- are forward looking and propose goals and activities that can be initiated after EuroDIG (recommendations)
- are in rough consensus with the audience
These Messages are finaly agreed by the Org Team on our Commenting Plattform.
EuroDIG wiki as the organising tool and archive
The EuroDIG wiki is publicly available and keeps all information and workflows in one place. It is our archive but also collaboration plattform for Org Teams, and increases the inclusiveness and transparency of the EuroDIG process.
