Application Process for Civil Society Participation in GCCS2015 Launched

This week the application process for civil society representatives interested in participating in the Global Conference on Cyberspace in The Hague has been launched.


The Conference organisers are very interested in securing a balanced and diverse civil society participation. Those interested in attending should fill in the Expression of Interest Form before Friday, January 30.


An ad hoc Advisory Board will assist the organizers of the Conference in selecting civil society participants to attend the GCCS2015 and the civil society pre-event, to help ensure that the Conference is as inclusive and representative as possible.


Civil society pre-event
A day and a half civil society pre-event will take place in the run-up to the Conference (14-15 April) to facilitate civil society coordination and input into the main Conference. An in-depth training on cyber security issues would be offered as part of this pre-event. In addition, an online training curriculum will be made available to the wider public. The Conference organisers are interested in a balanced and diverse participation and in supporting those who will find a practical use for the training and attendance offered.


The Hague Cyber Week
In the week of the GCCS2015 a Cyber Week will also be organised on the HSD Campus. This week will exist out of a range of events, including an innovation room and several debates. More information about the Cyber Week will be made available soon!
