Technology that helps our communities grow, self-govern, and self-determine
At the Community Technology Network Gathering we will convene practitioners and enthusiasts of community technology in all of its many forms to explore how technology can be used to address the needs of our communities and move us toward a more just and creative world. What are the shared values, priorities and goals that underpin the work of community technology? How does ownership of technology (or lack thereof) affect our movements and communities? How can technology help our communities grow, self-govern, and self-determine? What are our communities' most significant tech needs and challenges? How can we reduce redundancy in our work and create better solutions for our communities? How can we build relationships within a larger network of community tech practitioners around the world? We will form stronger relationships, new approaches to the problems we're trying to solve, and a shared sense of priorities and values that we can take back to our own projects and communities.
