DC3 Annual Meeting

The Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3) explores 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. This session will propose a selection of analyses aimed at moving forward the discussion on Internet connectivity and debate, in an inclusive fashion, the ways in which community networks may help create sustainable Internet connectivity while empowering Internet users. The panelists will explore the various technical, governance and policy aspects of community connectivity as well as a number of case studies, included in the DC3 Report Community Connectivity: Building the Internet from Scratch. The DC3 Report and the Guadalajara Declaration on Community Connectivity are the DC3 annual outcomes. Free hard copies of the Report will be distributed at the DC3 session (courtesy of Internet Governance @ FGV project).
