Share Fairs present a unique opportunity for participants to share and discuss the ways in which they have applied new methods of communication and knowledge sharing to improve the effectiveness and impact of their work.
The Share Fairs are interactive events that employ various knowledge sharing formats such as market stalls and booths, and workshops and presentations designed to encourage discussions.
Participants are shown the benefits of collaboration and are given examples that illustrate how knowledge sharing is applied to real life experiences and work. Share Fairs also usually feature examples of activities at the country level and people making use of local and indigenous knowledge.
To date, the ICT-KM Program has helped organize three Share Fairs: ShareFair 09, held in Rome, Italy; ShareFair Cali, held in Cali, Colombia; and the AgKnowledge Africa Share Fair, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
