Some brainstorming on this point:

In the previous IGF there was a lot of discussion on remote
participation and since it is very difficult for local people to travel
(we had tried in the case of Sarantaporo to bring some of the community
"champions" in Athens but it proved very difficult because they are both
shy and busy), I thought that it might be interesting to try something
creative along these lines.

E.g., we could organize remote participation from CNs in different
places around the world mediated by local english-speaking persons. I
think it would be cool if we could "bring together" people from
different continents in the same "space" meeting each other even if
"digitally".

If you think this is an interesting direction to explore I could try to
think more about it :-)

And btw, on July 7-8 the netCommons project organizes an international
conference in the Sarantaporo area with many special guests as you can
see here:

and there are still a few places available.

Best,

Panos
