Programme:

June 13th will offer a multi stakeholder dialogue, linking NGOs,
Business and the Public sector to a discussion on ICT - focusing on long
term sustainable and inclusive business. The conference will be an
including one, so all participants and speakers will be divided into
smaller discussion groups in the afternoon. The purpose of the seminar
is to gather different stake holders and let them initiate a dialogue of
Internet Governance and how different stakeholders can collaborate. We
believe that offering the opportunity to discuss and get to know each
other might initiate further collaboration in the future.

The seminar will be broadcasted via Internet and open to the public,
through a link on Sida’s home page. A chat link will be available for
those who want to ask questions to the speakers.

The main purpose of this pre-conference, is to encourage development,
strengthen democracy, promote sustainable long term businesses, create
work opportunities and better living conditions for people living in
poverty.
