First Report of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity
DRAFT Call for Papers
The need for a Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3) emerged during the IGF
workshop 223 "Community Networks: a Revolutionary Paradigm", held in João
Pessoa, during the 10th IGF. Workshop participants agreed on the potential of community
networks in order to promote sustainable Internet connectivity and foster the full
enjoyment of fundamental rights such as freedom of expression and self-determination.
Participants stressed the need to move forward the discussion on community networks and
further analyse how such networks may be used to foster sustainable Internet connectivity
while empowering Internet users. During the workshop, consensus emerged with regard to the
need for international cooperation aimed at fostering synergy and coordination amongst
different community networks. Such cooperation may be particularly useful in order to
