To those working in Community Networks,

The Association of Progressive Communications would cordially invite you to submit a short 1 page country level proposal for the 2018 Global Information Society Watch (GISWatch). Read the attachment for more detailed information.

The GISWatch is like a “rough-guide” to the information society from a civil society perspective – but one written by those living in the country they are talking about, and who get to see the impact of technology on their lives and in their countries first-hand.

GISWatch is a tool and a process for the collaborative monitoring of the implementation of national and international commitments made by governments towards the creation of an inclusive, open and sustainable information society.  For a look at the previous 11 GIS Watch editions, please see www.giswatch.org <http://www.giswatch.org/>.

You were recommended to submit a country level proposal due to your experience and the wealth of knowledge you would bring towards the 2018 theme of Community Networks. The short proposal submission would describe your idea for a 2300 word book chapter on the innovative experiences of a Community Network and the country context which has enabled this Community Network.

Specifically, the 1 page proposal criteria includes:
name, organisation, country
brief information on Community Network solution
duration of Community Network operations
half a page about the experience or innovation within a Community Network you plan to describe in the book chapter and your involvement with this Community Network.

Please make note of the short deadline.  Submissions must be sent to GIS Watch coordinator, Ms Kathleen Diga (kathleen at apc.org <mailto:kathleen at apc.org>) by MARCH 19, 2018.

We look forward to your response and thank you in advance for your consideration.


Kathleen Diga
Global Information Society Watch (GISWatch 2018) coordinator
