Writeshop about communication for development and knowledge management

paul.jpgI started today a 4 days writeshop about communication for development and knowledge management, organized by FAO and gtz. The aim is to describe the relationship between the two topics.

The writeshop is the final event of a long process that the two organizations started to analyze this relationship and it’s the attempt to collect and give a shape to the knowledge gathered during the previous meetings of experts, the last one of which was in Assisi, earlier this year.

Day 1Activities and aim

Today we collected all the pieces at disposal and worked on the definition of the structure of the book. Paul (you see him in the picture), who’s facilitating the event, gave this clear and interesting definition of the process we are involved: we have CONTENT, then STRUCTURE and WORDS. Today we elaborate the structure to give to our content. Then, we’ll look for the right words. That’s according the definition that “when data acquire a structure, they become information”.

I’ll keep on blogging the following days to describe next phases of the writeshop.
