So I am leaving out where the core self-interest overlaps with creating benefit for the society, but provide only the extraordinary examples and cooperations – some diamonds and nuggets - for the sake of society.
As I am supporting my argument that connecting community is often an essential part of Knowledge Mobilization for the global community, just try to imagine Knowledge Mobilization in these cases without the connecting efforts – Impossible in my opinion.
Right into it:
Ericsson and the Digital Health Initiative bring health-care access to rural populations through mobile technology.
In the Millenium Project to tackle extreme poverty in
Every girl and boy should have an education by 2020, is the theme, Connect to Learn is the initiative to make it happen, how? Enabling communication for all.
Another initiative to enable communication for all is the cooperation of Ericsson and the Mobile Broadband Commission.
Under this umbrella there can be found quite a bunch of activities and example of “a 2010 Leadership imperative: The future build on broadband”
That shall do to colour the picture for an ICT Knowledge Mobilizer connecting community. Still I am curious what others in ICT or in other industry sectors do.
