Local action. Global change.

of the world lacks
Internet access

It starts at home.

Local heroes working together to find ways to close the global digital divide.

Community networks offer a solution. These “do it yourself” networks built by people, for people, are more than just connection. Because when people connect to the Internet, they connect to opportunity.

Learn what it takes to build and sustain your own community network at a local Community Network Summit.

Follow the conversation at #CNsummit2019.

The Community Network Champions spent hours on airplanes, on trains, and in cars to get to the remote town in India. But it was with a purpose: a hands-on learning program to dig deep into how community-driven, frugal technology can connect the unconnected. They returned home to Nigeria, Haiti, Bahrain, Kyrgyzstan, Kenya, Indonesia, and the Philippines with renewed energy and skills to bridge the digital divide in their own communities.

The Internet is for everyone. Ready to join the movement?

Join the conversation, form partnerships, problem solve, and learn about local successes!
