I would also like to support what Heather said on call, as time did not allow for this yesterday .. It's also worth noting that:

-          Such GAC outreach worked very well with ATRT1 (the one I was involved in) .. 

-          As Joe mentioned below, governments are not accustomed to seeking the floor during open mic sessions and it's important to be aware and sensitive to the different ways different stakeholder groups work .. 

More generally,

-          I know time is not on our side, otherwise, I would have encouraged reaching out to all the different stakeholder groups .. Again, I believe this worked very well, was very rewarding and was well-received by the different stakeholder groups at the time of ATRT1 .. It doesn't have to be all members of the group .. It could be the chair and/or vice chair(s) as well as members representing this stakeholder group on the ICG ..

-          I believe it's important not only to allow participation but also to encourage it and reach out pro-actively ..


In all cases, many thanks Patrik for the good news and Alice for your efforts in confirming the extension of the open session ..


Kind Regards

Patrik, colleagues:

Based on Heather's comments and my experience interacting with a number of governments not accustomed to the multistakeholder process in the Net Mundial meeting, I think there may be a justification for a separate meeting with GAC...  As much as I would prefer not to have such a separate meeting, I am not sure that they would actively participate in the extended forum your reference... We should be very specific however that is would be a one time accommodation to assist in acclimation to the process.  

On the forum session, perhaps we could set aside 45 minutes as Q&A with communities?
