Thanks for that insight, Farzaneh. I support exploring the idea of organizing a civil society pre-event ahead of RightsCon.

Best,
Collin

However, a few of us are gathering on the Sunday afternoon (time & location TBC) to discuss inputs into the High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation  <http://www.un.org/en/digital-cooperation-panel/>(HLPDC) process.

>>> I had floated focusing the meeting on the HLPDC with the groups that organise the civil society coordination meeting a while back and those interested and following the panel are getting together informally to discuss our inputs into the consultation.

>>> Are there plans for a BB or CS meeting at the IGF in Paris? I know it's difficult with no day zero and a compressed schedule, but I'm hoping we get together. I haven't seen anything, so please repeat the info if I missed it. Hoping to see many of you there!
