Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

(online at http://igf.academy/#the-igf-academy-toolkit)

setting up a national Internet Governance Forum is a challenge in all
countries; it can be especially difficult in countries with little
experience in Internet governance processes. IGF Academy’s fellows have
been working to set up these structures in their respective countries –
Bangladesh, Bhutan, Congo (Brazzaville), Myanmar, Namibia, Sri Lanka,
South Africa, and Togo – for the last six months.

Today, at Day 0 of IGF 2016 in Guadalajara, Mexico, they are presenting
their experiences. (In case you would like to follow the presentation,
join the livestream starting at 1600 CST / UTC-6 -

They come in form of the IGF Academy Toolkit, a publication consisting
of two parts:

- The road to a local IGF: Strategies and experiences, a collection of
tools useful to kickstart an IGF – a template for a SWOT, ideas and
strategy for a fundraising plan, a communication strategy, and a roadmap
template. (download PDF, 3,6 MB -

- The road to a local IGF: Country profiles, A condensed collection of
the experiences fellows made (and are making) setting up a national IGF.
(download PDF, 1,7 MB - http://igf.academy/IGF-Academy-profiles.pdf)

What we would like to achieve with this is to offer a repository of
shared knowledge that people in other countries can benefit from setting
up their own national IGF process.

Please note that this is a work in process. After IGF 2016 we will
consolidate these documents into a Transfer Guide that will contain
sections on how to employ different techniques, i.e. a SWOT analysis, or
designing a communication strategy, and will share more of the
experiences that IGF Academy fellows made on their way creating a
national IGF. The document also needs copy editing; please bear with us.

Viele Grüße aus Guadalajara
