Hello, so this email is an attempt to
a) get a sense of what activity has been happening in
For what I know, regarding the BtN they asked to do some clarifications
(that were done) and that was about it for now.
If any of you want to see what was presented, you can go here:
b) suggest we have a meeting to regroup.
I havent received any emails from the working groups Im in, have people
been active on the chat groups facilitated by Nico? Any answers on BTN?
The activity in the chat has been mainly related to the BtN proposals,
not much since that.
Who is keen for a meeting? Maybe to simply regroup,
maybe to restart
some WG work? if I get majority response Ill set up a meeting poll.
As proposed topics for a council meeting I would say:
* regional summits: get everyone up to speed about the regional
meetings, when they are and where, who is gonna go to each, and how are
we going to participate as CNSIG. For what I know, we have 4 this year
* Africa: 2-9 Sept, Mankosi, South Africa
* Americas: End of year, place TBD
* Asia: September, place TBD: http://cnxapac.org/
* North American (Indigenous): 8-12 October, Edmonton and Inuvik,
I will hopefully be in Africa, Americas and Indigenous.
Would suggest to share the space, and that we collectively grow on
awareness on what the CNSIG can offer to each other and other new CNs
that want to join.
* Working Groups inspiration: despite we have had the WG for 6 months,
nothing has really happened in them (AFAIK). I would say it is in part
because we don't have an agenda, and for sure because we are
overcomitted also, but having an agenda is key. I would encourage the
council to inspire the WGs by proposing potential areas of work.
* Funding opportunities: In AlterMundi, we have been collecting
funding opportunities for project proposals, but we have not had time to
write them! (overcomitting again). Would like to know if us as a
collective would be interested in exploring funding opportunities
together (apart from BtN), what to fund, and how to organize in this matter.
