|WSIS+10 Review Meeting: Day One!
By Maurice Ali, President: IAIJ Inc.
Day one was successful with the opening ceremonies taking place as planned. It took place in the famous "Conference Room 1" of which the last major event was the Palestinian membership vote:
UNESCO's main meeting room!
So I was really excited to be in that famous room doing real participatory business on that world stage:
Maurice Ali for IAIJ at UNESCO Headquarters!
There I am! Member States had representatives there and Uganda was right in front of me and another country in front of Sue!
Signage at the entrance for member states to display at their desk!
Interesting to finally be among people like myself trying to improve the lives of all peoples of this world - such a change from the business environment. Some more photos of the opening ceremonies:
The front of Conference Room 1!
The rear of Conference Room 1!
Sue (IAIJ Director) looking at some reading material in the lobby!
Another photo of myself at UNESO Headquarters - we finally made it there!
Yes we have arrived. But as soon as that moment passed it was back to the business at hand. Our main mission for WSIS and that is citizen journalism on Wednesday February 27, 2013!
