Hi Luca, all:

I formatted the notes on MS Word and printed to PDF. There is at least one action item we need to follow up on:

"we need to decide if item 4 of the Declaration will be a separate document or not."

Also, I added text about taking into account how to organize resources in different languages.

Hi all,

Here are the minutes of today’s call.

Please add any item we may have forgotten




1.       Brief review of the last DC3 meeting in Guadalajara, at University of Guadalajara, MX

- The meeting was divided in 4 segments: training, policy, technical and sustainability

       2.    Resources and material on the DC3 website (www.comconnectivity.org )

                - The web page for resources and material on CNs need to be consolidated;

- Resources and Material will be classified according to their different type. E.g. academic publications, short articles, video, etc;

                - For training material it may be necessary a separated web page;

- It was suggested to offer pages for efforts that want to give an overview of their activities just to make more people aware of them.

                - A call for materials/resources will be launched on the DC3 list;

       3.   CNs events

- We need a an agenda of CNs events around the world, with tags or different colours categorizing events with different natures (eg., trainings, multistakeholder workshops, policy conferences, civil society meetings)

- Upcoming meeting and events:

·         Workshop on Community Connectivity at FGV Rio de Janeiro

·         RightsCon (DC3 and Article19 presented workshop proposals): https://www.rightscon.org/

·         Interdisciplinary workshop on DIY and community networking (Stockholm): http://diynetworking.net/ifipnetworking2017/

·         EuroDig: https://www.eurodig.org/index.php?id=76

·         Stockholm Internet Festival: http://www.stockholminternetforum.se/

·         Internet Freedom Festival: https://internetfreedomfestival.org/

·         Battle of the Mesh: http://battlemesh.org/BattleMeshV10

·         Nanaandawewigamig : http://fnhssm.events/

- We need to identify a proper tool for a collective agenda; it may be better to avoid tools that require the use of a gmail account

     4.      DC3 Declaration

              - https://pad.codigosur.org/GuadalajaraDeclaration

- A final request for comments will be shared on the list. So far, the Declaration has been open for comments and updated for more than 4 months. 

- Open questions: we need to decide if item 4 of the Declaration will be a separated document or not.

5.            Publications

-  GISWatch 2017 theme will be community networks. Mike will speak with Anriette to check if DC3 an APC can combine efforts.  http://www.giswatch.org/

-  The goal of a possible DC3-APC cooperation would be to avoid redundancy. GISwatch and DC3 Report have different format. Options for potential synergies will be discussed in the DC3 list

- Call for papers for the DC3 report to be discussed on DC3 list
