Outreach dashboard



Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well? The turn up was encouraging, even though the program was rescheduled to a later date.
  • What did not work so well? The weather transitioned from sunny to rainy and the global IP block was a challenge to more than 5 euthusiastic participants but they were eventually partnered with other participants.
  • What would you do differently next time? curb lateness by the participants which can delay the schedule of the program.
