KM4Dev 2013 in Seattle
KM4Dev 2013: Stocktaking on knowledge management for development

Where have we come from? Where are we now? And most interestingly, where are we headed?
Seattle, Washington, USA - July 29 - 31, 2013

* If you are part of the Knowledge Management for Development (KM4Dev) Community...
* If you work in knowledge management/knowledge sharing for development and would like to meet peers from around the world to test ideas, ask for advice, learn from others...
* If you live near or can get to Seattle and would like to engage around knowledge management...
* and want to engage with fabulous peers in development...
...Then we would be happy if you'd join us for the KM4Dev2013 meeting in Seattle Washington, USA between 29 and 31st July, 2013 for 2.5 days of learning, sharing, problem solving and imagining the future together.

This year (see previous KM4Dev meetings), we want to focus on new trends in knowledge management. 15 years after the World Bank's World Development Report stated that knowledge, not capital, is the key to sustained economic growth and improvements in human well-being.  

What is currently the role of knowledge management in international development? What have we learned about learning and knowledge sharing for development?

Has KM been mainstreamed in organizations?  What has knowledge management contributed to organizational change? Or has KM within international development made such inroads that it is no longer necessary as a stand-alone domain?

What are the emerging KM tools, toys and their practices? What is cooking after Web 2.0 and social media? What can we learn together and take back and apply to our work immediately?

What progress have we made in monitoring and evaluating our KM interventions?

Our first day, Monday 29, will be opened with a plenary session exploring these big ideas, and then participants can offer sessions in Open Space. We'll conclude the Open Space on Tuesday 30 in the afternoon with a series of activities to synthesize and "make sense" across the sessions. Wednesday 31 will be a half day dedicated to a KM4Dev community meeting. Seattle is also home to many interesting international development and non profit organizations- you may want to set up meetings with them on Wednesday.

This year's meeting will be held July 29-31st in Seattle Washington, USA. The REI (an outdoor clothing co-op) flagship store has a beautiful meeting space on their top floor we'll be using: http://www.rei.com/stores/seattle.html.
