Community Network Xchange (CNX) 2018

‹ Back
49% of the world is still not connected. Each person without Internet access is someone who is missing out on the future opportunities.

Help us switch on the Internet, community by community.

The theme of Community Network Xchange (CNX) 2018 will be ‘Role of community networks and community radios in leveraging public wi-fi in Asia Pacific countries’. This year’s CNX will focus on the role that community radios and community networks can play in creating public wi-fi spaces in Asia Pacific.

Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) and the Internet Society organised the first Community Network Xchange (CNX) in 2017 with support from Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and APNIC. The theme of the first Community Network Xchange (CNX) was ‘Understanding the social & economic sustainability approaches of Community Networks in Asia Pacific’. As the first edition identified synergies between community networks and community radios, CNX 2018 will be focused on their further exploring.

Rajnesh Singh, our Regional Bureau Director for Asia-Pacific, will be speaking at this event.

Together we can #SwitchItOn.
