The open consultation process aims at ensuring the participatory
and inclusive spirit of the gathering. It actively engages
governments, civil society, the private sector, academia and
intergovernmental organizations in the preparatory process
ensuring multi-stakeholder participation and constant evolution
of the Forum.
From 30 November 2014 until 6 February 2015, all stakeholders were
invited to contribute their formal inputs towards shaping the themes
and format of the WSIS Forum 2015. The ITU-WSIS Secretariat received
more than 120 submissions containing proposals for the thematic
workshops, including binding requests for partnerships, workshops,
exhibition spaces and so on.
