CivicNet '02 E-conference
Aug 21, 2002
Build Local Power With Community Networks
September 18-October 2, 2002
CivicNet '02 is a two week world-wide, online event bringing together the global networks of people,
resources, and practices that put information and communication technology (ICT) to work to sustain
economic development, enhance quality of community life and engage stakeholders in decisions that
* The Global/Local Dynamic of Community Networking
* The New Community Technologies of Freedom
* Best Practices for Stakeholder Engagement
Who should Attend?
Entrepreneurs, community network organizers, journalists, public officials, artists, teachers,
students, consultants, researchers, funders, librarians, investors, and enthusiasts who regard
themselves as front-line innovators and catalysts. Does this sound like you?
Few can hope to attend all of the major upcoming conferences where these issues will be explored;
indeed several key upcoming conferences will take place at the same time in October and in different
countries simultaneously. There continues to be a long-standing hope that ICT can serve communities
facing challenging situations and decisions. What is new; what has changed? What new initiatives or
policy frameworks are emerging on the global stage that will affect local community use of advanced
ICT? Where is the leading edge right now, with new community "technologies of freedom"
such as neighborhood wireless and community broadband?
