Things learned at the conference

  • ESEAP Hub - Until now we just hear about just abstract of "concept of hub", during this conference there were significant progress has been made on how to configure the hub. I hope that it will be disclosed more transparently to related communities and affiliates in the future.
  • How can we deal with the "Language Barrier" to becoming global community - we have to be more accessable to the people who are not understanding the English.
  • Learning initiatives from other region - What can we learn from the other affiliates
