Expected outcomes[edit]

  • Ideally, the chairs are set-up in a large circle, without tables, so that we can create a good atmosphere for an open conversation. We would need a projector for some parts of the session.
  • It would be nice to have sticky notes and pencils so that all participants can write down their key ideas, concerns and needs.
