I just wanted to do a follow-up on the topic of knowledge sharing.
Who of you are doing courses on community connectivity?
Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my brevity.
Is anyone planning on attending this (including you Bob)? It might be a
good networking/outreach activity:
IEEE, in conjunction with the World Bank, will be holding the Global
Connect Stakeholders: Advancing Solutions event in Washington, DC, on 13-14
A few months ago, I reached out to the community for input on 1 World
Connected's effort to catalog initiatives seeking to connect the
unconnected. We received an outpouring of support from all corners, and a
number of new resources that have significantly enhanced the catalog. Version
2 <https://goo.gl/oahE3H> now has over 600 case studies covering a wide
range of technologies and capacity building efforts.
This document is a *curation* of a number of widely available online
sources as well as submissions made via our website's form and in-person
meetings at various venues over the course of the last year in India,
Mexico, Britain and USA, and I would like to acknowledge thank the very
many people that have contributed and shared their work and knowledge
through mails, reports and conversations, without whom this resource will
not have been possible. It is their work that has been compiled and
organized, and a list of all major sources are mentioned in the first sheet
of the catalog.
As ever, the document is open for feedback and will continue to be upgraded
as the project proceeds, so please do reach out in case you are aware of
additional case studies that we can document. The spreadsheet is available
on the following link: https://goo.gl/oahE3H
The next stage of our project envisages compiling case studies of these
projects through secondary research and interviews, and I will update on
our progress on the same periodically. Newer case studies will also be
uploaded to our website (1worldconnected.org), and we are in the process of
revamping the interface so that the data can be presented and accessed more

I just read this Interesting article:
I know the idea of providing Internet via power lines is more or less a
defunct idea (not due to technological constraints, but the lack of
political will to invest in it to protect existing revenues). However, has
anyone on this list ever thought about working with electricity companies,
especially local power companies?

Updates & Opportunities
To: spiteam <spiteam(a)childrenyouth.org>
Dear UN MGCY,
We are eager to share with you updates on the *UN Annual multi-stakeholder
forum on Science, Technology, & Innovation for SDGs*. As part of the
Technology Facilitation Mechanism, agreed as part of the 2030 Agenda and
Addis Ababa Action Agenda, it seeks to:
1) provide a venue for facilitating interaction, matchmaking and the
establishment of networks between relevant stakeholders and
2) Identify and examine technology needs and gaps, including with regard to
scientific cooperation, innovation and capacity-building.
3) Facilitate development, transfer and dissemination of relevant
technologies for the sustainable development goals.
The 2017 ST&I Forum will take place *May 15-16, 2017* in *NYC* at the *UN
HQ*. Topics for this year's forum are:
- Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
- Goal 2. End hunger, food security, sustainable agriculture
- Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
- Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
- Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, sustainable industrialization,
- Goal 14. Oceans, seas and marine resources
- ST&I policy, S&T advising, emerging technologies, and S&T ecosystems
For more info, please visit: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/
Youth have a crucial role to play in ensuring appropriate use and access to
technology and innovation, as well as technical knowledge assessment for
evidence-informed decision making, and effective science communication to
bridge gaps between science, policy, and society.
We are just starting our preparations for the ST&I Forum and look forward
to your contributions throughout the process!

Hi, an update ... After looking for direct or indirect contacts with the
elected president of IFLA I sent her this email below (translated from
Catalan). She already replied that she's away but we'll talk when she's
A rough translation of my message:
Hi Glòria, I am a researcher at UPC and do research community networks.
At the last IGF in Guadalajara (MX) we had the opportunity to speak with
Stuart Hamilton on the issue of universal access to the Internet
(Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity). We both agreed that
community networks (communication networks created and managed by the
citizens themselves) as libraries share some values and objectives in
this regard. We said it could be useful to contact you in your role as
president. In addition, in Catalonia we have one of the world's largest
community network, guifi.net, with more than 32,000 nodes.
Here is a video that has been done to explain the relationship between
libraries and community networks (especially in rural areas) here in the
context of guifi.net:

If you see something interesting and want to discuss ideas for
collaboration we can meet. Roger Baig and Roger Pueyo in copy from the
