Great to see that so many good ideas are already emerging from the list!
Leandro, many thanks for the very useful info. This is exactly the kind of resources we
need! The GAIA workshop looks interesting: do you know if the sessions will be
live-streamed? Perhaps, video recordings will be published?
As regards next steps, I would like to send a request to establish the DC3 by the end of
the week, if possible. So far, these are the elements (required by the IGF Secretariatat)
at my disposal:
Bob Frankston, IEEE Consumer Electronics Society
Frédéric Donck, ISOC
Nicolás Echániz, Altermundi
Ritu Srivastava, Digital Empowerment Foundation
Kevin Bankston, New America Foundation
Raoul Plommer, Electronic Frontier Finland
Leandro Navarro, UPC, community-lab.net
Janara Sousa, Universidade de Brasília
Catherine Middleton, Ryerson University
Diego Vicentin, UNICAMP
Nathalia Foditsch, American University
Luca Belli, Center for Technology & Society, Fundação Getulio Vargas
Jamila Venturini, Center for Technology & Society, Fundação Getulio Vargas
Lee Hibbard, Council of Europe
Feel free to invite new people or to add your name and affiliation to the pad, if you want
to be included as DC3 member.
Nico and myself.
Usually IGF Dynamic Coalitions have two or three coordinators: it would be very nice to
have also a woman amongst the coordinators, in order to have more gender balance. Should
any ladies be interested in being a co-coordinator, be my guest :)
Up and running!
Below the current draft (feel free to modify it using the pad)
The Dynamic Coalition on Connected Communities (DC3) emerged as an outcome of the IGF
workshop 223 "Community Networks: a Revolutionary Paradigm", held in João
Pessoa, during the 10th IGF.
The DC3 has been created in order to foster multistakeholder analysis of the various types
and models of community networks, with the aim of identifying and promoting best practices
and sustainable approaches to Internet connectivity in the context of communities.
The DC3 participants will foster joint efforts aimed at:
* • Making CN visible to policy makers so they can be properly considered as
an actor in the telecomunications ecosystem.
* • Identifying good open-access readings that may be useful to communicate to
non-techies what CN are and how they work;
* • Mapping existing CN and try to foster communication amongst them,
promoting strategies to achieve common goals;
* • Identifying models of CN (e.g. rural CN, urban CN, etc.) and best
practices that can make them particularly efficient and resilient both from a technical
and organizational perspective;
* • Identifying best practices and worst practices as regards national and
international policies that facilitate or hinder the deployment of community networks.
* • Consolidating and publishing of this ideas into some ‘Community Network
Guidelines/Best practices’ to be presented at the next IGF and divulgated on the future
Thanks to everyone for the interest and very good ideas shared so far. Do not hesitate to
All the best

Assunto: Re: [DC3] Coalition Draft document / pad
Dear Nico and all, congratulations for the initiative.
Let me introduce to save you from an extra email :-). I got your email through APC last
night, the same night that we had the award ceremony in Brussels where the guifi.net
community network got the European Broadband Award from the European Commission for its
“innovative model of financing, business and investment”
The video about guifi.net
A detailed research paper that describes its socio-economic and governance model:
and in spanish too:
One of the many contributions to the guifi.net
network and model comes from the
collaboration between Pangea.org
and the guifi.net
community, that I belong to.
We have the http://community-lab.net
testbed for experimentation, and an upcoming research
project: netcommons.eu<http://netcommons.eu> all working with community networks.
You can count on us to contribute and help to your great initiative.
Linked to this, there is the GAIA effort (ISOC/IRTF, web and mailing
) in the next GAIA
(London, Nov 30, co-located with the ACM-DEV
conference) we’ll have a world-cafe style discussion on socio-economic or
business/sustainability models of infrastructures and services for GAIA. Guifi.net
other initiatives, will be there. Davide from Deloitte who was participating/leading the
APC Infrastructure Sharing report will join the workshop and share his views there.
You're welcome to join. If you plan to be there just let me know.
All the best, Leandro.

First of all welcome to this list that we are hosting in support of Luca
Belli's initiative to create this Dynamic Coalition on Connected
Communities (DC3), in the context of the IGF.
He has also created a pad so we can work together on a short document to
describe what this Coalition will be about:
Please review it and feel free to edit there, add your own ideas and
comment in this list.
I think it could be interesting to add a paragraph or short list of
specific subjects we are interested in exploring further, like spectrum,
community licences, organizational and business models, technologies
Welcome, and let's make this work!
