congratulations! Looking forward to reading more about it! As the German
IGF secretariat and also part of the secretariat of the European regional
initiative (EuroDIG) I also strongly encourage you to contact the IGF
secretariat. They are the entry point of the network of regional and
national initiatives and you can thus exchange questions, ideas and
experiences with new and older initiatives at a local and regional level.
Kind regards and congratulations once more,

> Best and good luck!
