About this website
  Worldsummit2003.org offers background information and latest news on the WSIS process and on the issues and debates around the summit. It was set up by the Heinrich Boell Foundation in February 2003 and is part of the efforts of the Foundation to spread knowledge and information about the summit, both in Germany and internationally. The site editors are members of the German WSIS Civil Society Coordinating Group and are also active in the international civil society activities on WSIS.

The site seeks to combine several objectives. It is
1. a general info site about the WSIS for civil society worldwide
2. an information source for German civil society, particularly
3. a window for the rest of the world to find out about WSIS preparation in Germany

Therefore you will find a mixture of international as well as Germany-specific topics. Please use the navigation menu in the left column to read about the background, structure, and themes of the summit, and to find out more about civil society participation and preparations in Germany. Check the middle column regularly to keep up-to-date with the latest WSIS developments.
