Hello Nico,

In addition to what Peter mentioned, I already have funds to attend the IGF as a Youth IGF fellow and as part of Redes A.C./Rhizomatica. For what I was told, my travel dates will be strictly between the 11 and the 14. Do you think we will meet a day before or after? So I can see if I can add them to my itinerary. 

Moreover, at that time Rodrigo will be at ITU's Plenipotentiary Conference. From what we have been doing these last months, we managed to work on three documents that talk about community networks. You can find them attached. Rodrigo is also in this conversation in case you have any questions for him.

Hi fellow Council members,

We have received this communication from Jane Coffin (ISOC):

We wanted to give you a head’s up that we may be allocating funds
for 2-3 CN-SIG members to attend the IGF in Paris. We would want the
CN-SIG to choose those 2-3 humans/run the process for choosing.

We will need to coordinate with you as we also are planning to
provide funding to people working on some of our CN deployments or
those receiving BNET grants for CN grants. And, for example Karla
Velasco just made our 25 under 25 for IGF.

Sol and I have talked a bit about this and we want to propose:

1) everyone who has already secured funding for their participation in
the next IGF please say so;

2) if your organization is part of CN deployments mentioned by Jane or
have been awarded BNET 2018 grants, let us know;

3) those willing to participate but have not yet secured funding, also
please say so; and please detail if you are invited to take part in IGF
panels or activities.

With this information at hand, we can then collectively choose those 3
people we will propose to receive the travel support.
