Kummer Speaking IGF PhotoThis session, led by Markus Kummer, executive director of the UN’s IGF Secretariat, allowed leaders of regional and dynamic-coalition initiatives to report back to the Internet Governance Forum about their efforts.

Among the participants in the presentation were Thomas Schneider of Switzerland, reporting on the EuroDIG – the European Dialogue on Internet Governance; Claudio Lenoci of the government of Italy, reporting on its initiative to support the formalization of Internet rights; Ernesto Majo of LACNIC, reporting about the Latin American and Caribbean community; Alun Michael, a member of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, reporting on the effort to start a UK IGF; Adiel Akplogan reporting on two initiatives in Africa, in Kenya and Senegal; and Max Senges of the Dynamic Coalition for an Internet Bill of Rights.

The video clips included here are a remote capture of the live web-video stream produced from IGF. The files have some dropouts, freezes, and other glitches, but for the most part the video and audio are clean and clear. Special thanks to the technical advisers who handled the video streaming from IGF to allow remote participants to play a role.

Due to technical limitations on the receiving end, some segments of some of the recorded IGF sessions are missing. The link to a UN PDF of the full transcript is included below.

These are QuickTime video files that require a high-speed connection. We will later link them on YouTube in a smaller, more convenient file size.
