The aim of every thematic webinar session is to identify common positions through discussions. Some webinars will have external inputs. The process is supported by a team of facilitators.

We will probably record the first informational webinar for all those who are not able to participate, and make it available on this site. 

From the thematic webinars, please choose the topics that interest you most. We are aware that times might not be doable for everyone, but we did our best to distribute webinars to different times. You do not have to participate in every webinar, but you can. You have received a link to a planning document in your email. Please indicate which webinars you will participate in on the document until September 24.
