|Internationale Aids-Konferenz 2010|
Community Forum Austria
The Community Forum Austria 2010 is the national platform for non-governmental organizations and Community representatives for the preparation of the World AIDS Conference 2010 in Vienna.
The cooperating organizations make all decisions in the Plenary, which meets on a regular basis.
Detailed aspects will be worked on in Working Groups. At present, in accordance with the structure of the International Aids Society, working groups are planned in the areas of „Youth Program“, „Cultural Program“ and „Global Village“, as well as a Coordinating Group. (The Coordinating Group regularly harmonizes the policies, the communication, and the work agendas.) When necessary, the working structure can be adapted.
The Community Forum Austria 2010 deems as necessary a structured and institutionalized exchange and communication with the other actors in the preparation of the World AIDS Conference 2010, and aims for an early implementation of such a structure.
The Community Forum Austria 2010 defines its tasks as follows:
-Agreement upon the Austrian Community positions regarding the World AIDS Conference 2010, in accordance with the aims of the International Aids Society
-Harmonization and Coordination of the Austrian Community contributions to the World AIDS Conference 2010
-Nomination of Austrian and international contributions to the program as a whole of the World AIDS Conference 2010
-Coordination with politics, administration, science, and culture as regards the World AIDS Conference 2010
-Networking with existing organisations, platforms, and associations in Austria
-Networking with the Community representatives in Middle-, Southeast- and Eastern Europe with regard to the impact of the conference sought for by the IAS for these geographic regions.
The Plenary decides in particular on:
This Memorandum serves to develop, together, a Community identity of the Austrian actors for the World AIDS Conference 2010. This identity shall manifest itself in wide cooperation, agreed on positions and actions, and extensive and uniting Community actions towards the World AIDS Conference 2010.
