Exploring overlapping interests between the GlobalNet21 community and the Dadamac UK-Africa online community

This is a small round-table style meeting (at central London location) where everyone's voice can be heard. The Dadamac community will be represented by me (Pamela McLean) as I represent the Dadamac community in London.

The Dadamac community started with connections between the UK and Nigeria, but now connects with people in other countries and on other continents. It is a group of people, (many of whom have worked together on practical projects) who are able to stay in contact thanks to the Internet and mobile phones. It is a source of rich information about the realities of life in Africa, especially sub-Saharan Africa. We are interested in local knowledge and global perspectives, and the exchange of relevant information between people in different countries.

In Globalnet21 people are concerned for the sustainability of both our planet and the people on it. It is a network of individuals (and also a collaborative network of organisations) exchanging good practice, transferring knowledge, and learning from each other.

The description above also describes the Dadamac community, so there are many possible overlaps for us to explore. How can we learn from each other and collaborate? We'll explore this on a group level and an individual level.
