As WSIS just took place a couple of weeks ago, I just wanted to ask to the
ones who went or the ones who followed it, if there were any important
conclusions or statements on Community Networks or Community Connectivity.
Any information or document would be of great help!

Hi nico in brazil we are doing videos and preparing educational marerials with hybrid networks. When i arrive in home i can send the drafts and will be good to create a common space to share and co-create a better contents collectivly

I just wanted to do a follow-up on the topic of knowledge sharing.
Who of you are doing courses on community connectivity?

In light of the very positive feedback regarding the idea of developing a brief CN Manual, as a 2018 DC3 Outcome, I have prepared a DRAFT Call for Resources.
Feel free to comment on the DRAFT by 28 June, using this pad https://pad.codigosur.org/DRAFTcall_for_resources_DC3
The Call is below
All the best
IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3)
*DRAFT* 2018 Report - Call for Resources *DRAFT*
The Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3) is a multistakeholder group, part of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF)<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/dynamiccoalitions>, dedicated to promoting the discussion on community networks (CN). DC3 furthers analysis of how CNs may help create sustainable Internet connectivity while empowering Internet users. Further information regarding DC3 can be found on the IGF website<http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/dynamic-coalition-on-commun…> as well as on comconnectivity.org
Previous DC3 reports, dedicated to Community networks: the Internet by the people<http://bibliotecadigital.fgv.br/dspace/handle/10438/19401>, for the people (2017) and to Community Connectivity: Building the Internet from Scratch<http://bibliotecadigital.fgv.br/dspace/handle/10438/17528> (2016), and to are freely available under Creative Commons License.
The Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity, established under the auspices of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, invites all interested individuals to submit papers describing how CN can be deployed and presenting technologies, toolkits and instruction for the concrete constructions of CNs.
This call aims at developing a brief CN manual, providing concrete guidance on:
· What low cost hardware could be used to deploy a CN
· What software and applications could be used to run a CN
· How to install and configure hardware and software
Only papers providing instructions, guidance or describing concrete technological solutions will be considered for inclusion in the 2018 report, even if they have been previously published.
The length of the submissions should be between 2000 and 8000 words. To facilitate the reviewing process, papers should not include author names or other information that would help identify the authors. All submission shall be in English.
Authors shall use footnotes rather than endnotes and submission should be in Microsoft Word or OpenDocument Text format.
Submissions are due on 30 July 2017. They should include the following elements:
· Short abstract (250 words)
· First draft of the submitted paper
· Author’s name, afﬁliation and short bibliographical note (in the body of the email)
Submissions should be sent to luca.belli(a)fgv.br<mailto:email@example.com>
Authors will be notiﬁed within approximately 7 days from the deadline as to the status of their contributions.
All submitted papers will be subject to peer review.
Authors will be given the opportunity to improve their contributions based on peer comments.
Selected papers will be published into the 2018 Report of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity, which will be published in open access, under Creative Commons licenses.
Authors will also be invited (at their own expenses) to present their work at the annual DC3 meeting to be held at the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, from 12 to 14 November, at the UNESCO headquarter in Paris, France.

Dear all, (apologies for typos, I am writing fom a device with no corrector)
Yesterday, we had a very interesting and fruitful meeting at rightscon. Below a brief recap of the ideas that emerged from the discussion.
First, it would be interesting to dedicate the 2018 DC3 outcome to a compilation of exsiting toolkits (e.g. Mazi tooltik), instructions (e.g. Commotion), technologies (Libre Router), etc. that allow people to concretely build community networks, rather than elaborating another book.
Second, it would be good to dedicate part of the DC3 session to "let the unconnected speak for themselves" i.e. bringing into the debate people that are currently attempting to build CNs, to lat them share the difficulties they are facing and discuss with DC3 members how to solve them. Nico Pace and Leandro pointed out that there are a lot of commmunities that are attempting to build CNs that would be willing to share their experience.
Third, it would be very interesting to dedicate part of the session to discussing partnerships with stakeholders with whom we can establish unexplored cooperation. IFLA (Donna was present at the meeting) was an obvious exemple but many others can be added to the list (e.g. community radio, etc).
Lastly, (this point partly overlap with the previous one) it would be very interesting to bring into the discussion and and establish cooperation with developers of technologies that can be compelentary to the development of CN e.g. blockchain projetc (e.g. delife.io which was presented by Jan who participated to the meeting), IoT solutions developers, etc.
Which format could be the best suited for a compilation of toolkits, etc? A specific website? A webpage of the DC3 site? Something else?
It would be very challenging to discuss all the points mentioned above during the DC3 session (even if the 90 minutes slot has been reinstored, after many participants complained about last year 60 min slot). Therefore it would be advisable to put forward a workshop proposal, besides the DC3 session.
The session DC3 could have a structure along these lines
- presentation of (at least some of) the initiatives featured in the compilation/catalogue of toolkits (40 min)
- discussion with people in their early phase of CN development to undertand the challeges they are facing (30 min)
- discussion with potential partners (20 min)
The discussion/presentation of technologies and initiatives that can compelement CN development is so broad that could be the object of a specific session.
Stavroula and Harris, from Mazi, kindly volunteered to take the lead to develop the workshop proposal (deadline 27 May) for a collaborative workshop where such initiatives/technologies can be presented.
Info on how to develop a workshop propsal can be found here https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/igf-2018-call-for-workshop… (pay particular attention to "workshop evaluations")
Here is the online form to submit the proposal https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/igf-2018-workshop-proposal…
Here the list of the workshop approved last year to have some exemples http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/igf-2017-workshops
Please feel free to share comments and add any info I may have forgotten or correct anything I may have misreported
All the best
Hola, I'm sharing with you a course announcement on community networks,

(Cloud Computing) y el Big Data, como los primeros de una serie que se
exhibirán en futuros WALC. Adicionalmente se ha incluido un nuevo track
sobre Redes Comunitarias con el fin de presentar y discutir diferentes
metodologías de organización, modelo de negocio, oferta de servicio, el
modelo de participación y gobernanza, así como para revisar mecanismos
Si estás interesado en contribuir como colaborador (promotores y
participantes de redes comunitarias a lo largo de América) avísame.

Its early planning stages but i wanted to share with all of you some of
the activities that will correspond to the ICANN Montreal for late October
2019. The ICANN ATLARGE community will be holding a general assembly for
the ATLARGE AT ALARGE Structures( Over 200 organizations) to attend the
We also plan on holding the second North American School of Internet
Governance a few days in advance of the event and it would be open for
I am floating the idea to this group that perhaps we can utalize the space
and opportunity to hold some evening workshops for Community Networking.
The benefit would be substantial savings on conference space.
Request can we table this idea on one of the future calls for discussion?
