“All knowledge is connected to all other knowledge. The fun is in making the connections” Arthur Aufderheide, University of Minnesota.
By bringing together Knowledge Management professionals over two days from 27- 29 May, 2010 at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) in Cali, Colombia, and in connection with theCGIAR-FAO Share Fair (same location, 25-27 May, 2010) the KM4Dev community will contribute to develop a strong KM4Dev movement in Latin America and Caribbean (LAC). Specifically we hope to:
· Identify, initiate, and foster collaborative relations and professional friendship among people who work with knowledge management for development in Latin America.
· Offer a space for collective learning and knowledge sharing among the participants (learning labs)
· Contribute to the creation/strengthening of a core group in the Spanish speaking community in KM4Dev.
This is an invitation to all members of this community to participate, and promote the event among your colleagues and networks. It is also an invitation to organizations who work in LAC to provide funding. Please read the concept note of our initiative here: http://wiki.km4dev.org/wiki/index.php/KM4DevCali_Concept
