    Our proposed projects for the first phase of the Summit in Geneva include web logging (with the aim of involving young people in the Summit and gathering news and opinions for people to take back to their own communities), mapping of UK good practice and a toolkit focusing on national policy and regulatory framework, the digital divide and access to information, and information and governance.
