Communication technologies and affordable quality Internet access are

Experience and cultivate an antidote to the worldwide digital divide:

community-initiated networks for free communication and broadening
access to the Internet.

This year's freifunk.net summer convention aims to cultivate and support
community-initiated strategies for broadening access to the Internet's
information and communication resources worldwide. The convention
intends to:

      * Facilitate discussion and exchange of best practices on existing
        community-owned free networks

      * Establish common strategies, guidelines and tools for setting up
        an efficient, local free network

      * Initiate and foster the continued growth of this virulent
        community committed to the exchange of ideas and information.

The Djursland project is one of Europe's leading wireless community
networks, a volunteer-run organization that connects more than 2,000
people. While at Djursland, convention participants will get first-hand
knowledge of best practices for launching and maintaining a
community-wide network.
