Elisabeth Ziegler is librarian in the city of Lienz, the regional center
of East Tyrol. She is hosting this weekend a meeting of NGOs and
llibrarian associations to support the UN Decade of Education for
Sustainable Development collaborating with the Austrian UNESCO office.
The work that Elisabeth is doing is very much in line with the ideas
promoted in our groups, namely self-learning, self-unfolding, networks of
support and cooperation, open working, oppen access.
Elisabeth has allowed us to use the (copyrighted) work "the little owl" in
our wiki; with this work, she wants to support the creation of textbooks
and merchandise that help building more computerized places of learning
and access in African Libraries.

Elisabeth has also developed a methodology for the decade that is very
similar to Minciu Sodas methodology. She has created a working paper for
the decade which includes the call for open work and investigarory
questions. See a German Version here:
Translation of this paper to English would be very valued. Maybe the
Minciu Sodas community could offer support to UNESCO along these lines. If
coming tue, lot of support and open venues will be needed.
Elisabeth is in touch with many places in Africa, especially in Kenia and
Madagaskar. I think it would make a lot of sense she joins forces with
Janet and Joy. Maybe the little owl project could be a good symbolic
connector for that.
