GOVRT › Speaker Guidelines
Mayors and Ministers who would like to make a three minute intervention during the course of the day are kindly requested to consult the following suggested guidelines when proposing a topic of intervention and preparing remarks.
Content of Remarks
While we encourage participants to speak to their city or country’s experiences, we also strongly urge you to highlight common challenges, ideas and experiences, to respond to the questions in the Roundtable agenda (www.oecd.org/urban/roundtable), to formulate common options for financing sustainable cities, and to contribute to the Roundtable messages to Rio+20. We suggest preparing remarks in the form of bullet points rather than a written speech.
Timing of Remarks
To allow a fair allocation of time among participants and to enable an in-depth discussion, we have established these guidelines for each participant:
Please inform the OECD Secretariat before 10 February 2012 if you would like to make three minute prepared remarks. The OECD Secretariat will contact you to discuss the content of the remarks.
