Diplo at the 4th IGF

01 November 2009

Event description

Diplo delegates attended the 4th IGF meeting held in Sharm el-Sheikh, in November 2009. During the IGF, further efforts were made to reach out to an increased range of stakeholders through the use of Web 2.0 tools for both remote participation and online social reporting, as a way to cut travel costs while enlarging the involved communities through online tools. While an imbalance remained between stakeholders from developed and developing countries, the participation of youth was noticeably greater and more organised than in previous years.
