Dear All,

I was going to list broader areas to collect information from the various
telecentres represented in this working group, so that we can link it to
real life examples to highlight the diverse applications of telecentres.
However, as I am not familiar with all of the applications that are underway
in the various telecentres, I thought it best to list the table of contents
of the CS Declaration so as not to overlook any possibilities.

Therefore, please email to me or post the areas below that apply to work
being done in the telecentres with which you are affiliated.   It would also
be helpful to include a sentence or two specifically describing the
particular application to the content area.  If you need more information
about a particular area, please see the CS Declaration at

This will be helpful information to draft a paragraph that would connect
telecentres to the work of the various WSIS caucuses and working groups.
This would also, hopefully, gather support for collaborative lobbying to
have the importance of telecentres included in the outcome documents of WSIS
