One more day to go! Tomorrow, on November 19, 2013 at 10:00AM ART/ 8:00AM EST – the MSI Panel and the GovLab will launch its distributed, global brainstorm to help get the best ideas for evolving and adapting ICANN for the future.
In anticipation of tomorrow’s launch, we wanted to let you know how you can help us spread the word about this engagement opportunity and get your communities and networks involved.
Spreading the Word
While the MSI Panel members have been selected because of their cross-disciplinary expertise, seven people alone don’t suppose to have all the answers in how to best design a 21st century participatory institution. That’s why we need the help of the ICANN community and the global public. Coordination of the DNS is too important to the stability, security, and reliability of the Internet for us not to engage widely and wisely in this important charge.
What You Can Do To Help
Here are the steps you can take to help us get all relevant and affected stakeholders engaged:
- Starting tomorrow, add ideas and encourage members of your network/community/region to contribute ideas to the MSI Panel’s Ideascale community site by providing them with the link: http://thegovlab.ideascale.com. Note the site supports use and submission in many languages. (Also note, the community page is not yet open, but will be accessible starting tomorrow.)
- To inspire participation and learn how to contribute, watch and share a video The GovLab made for the launch of this distributed campaign: https://vimeo.com/govlab/review/79514612/7f1c17e62b.
- Broadcast this engagement initiative widely within your network. Share this blog post and others related to our engagement initiative. (Feel free to repost to fit your needs).
- Share this information within your community and network via mailing lists and listserves.
- Use social media platforms such as Facebook or Twitter to spread the word about the campaign. Use the #WeCANN hashtag!
- Host your own brainstorming forum sometime over the next 6 weeks and share ideas generated with the MSI Panel at [email protected]. Feel free to capture your ideas via video to share with the Panel and the public, too.
Follow @TheGovLab and the #WeCANN and #ICANN48 hashtag on Twitter for updates, too.
