About the Tech Talks category

The “Community networks tech-talk” webinars are a series of online gatherings promoted by the APC and Rhizomatica’s Local Networks initiative, aiming to build dialogues, information exchange and knowledge sharing between people engaged with community networks and local access initiatives in different realities and countries. We intend to held monthly live encounters to discuss different topics related social and tech aspects of CNs and use this forum for asynchronous conversation around them.

The topics of conversation were pointed in conversations with LocNet peers and partners in all regions and should cover diverse themes, such as LibreRouter, local services and offline networks, social enterprise, fundraising and financing strategies, e-waste and recycling of digital devices, solar energy and batteries. With the series, we have a opportunity to share knowledge and hear from the voices of those building connectivity solutions and overcoming challenges every day, especially the women involved in community networks.
