For 20 years, Pangea has worked to bring the internet and all of its possibilities to social movements and organisations, promoting the strategic use of communications networks and ICTs to contribute to development and social justice.
Over the years, Pangea has undergone numerous changes and worked with many different technicians, collaborators, volunteers and partners. To celebrate this, throughout the months of November and December, various activities were organised to look back at these 20 years. Many of its partners shared their memories though email and the web, and others also accompanied Pangea at the workshop on community networks, privacy and security held in December, to learn more about these issues as well as to raise a toast for two decades of shared efforts.
Pangea also offered presentations, demonstrations and workshops at different events and conferences in 2013 as part of its participation in the European CONFINE (Community Networks Testbed for the Future Internet) project, including the Free/Open Source Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) and European Development Days 2013 in Brussels.
