The World Summit on the Information Society forum began its annual Open Consultation Process on thematic aspects and innovations on the format of the WSIS Forum 2018. The process aimed at “ensuring a participatory and inclusive spirit of the Forum, scheduled to be held from 19-23 March at ITU in Geneva. This process actively engaged governments, civil society, the private sector, academia, the technical community and intergovernmental organizations in the preparatory process to ensure broad ownership and further improvements of the Forum.”
The Open Consultation Process included a collection of inputs from regional and national WSIS related events and the physical meetings of the Open Consultation Process will benefit from remote participation.
