Thursday 1st October

e-Session 6: Planning actions #2

What is an action exactly? Does the action answer the objectives and vision previously defined? How to make sure it can become a reality? Following up the Planning Actions #1 session, this very hands-on workshopwill help participants to practice designing actions and provide tools to develop a coherent and meaningful set of actions.

The e-session will be split in two parts:
- 10.00 (CET): plenary with Ian Graham
- 11.00 (CET): Working Groups (exclusive for local stakeholders from the networks and e-Facilitators)

The links to join the e-session will be sent to participants via e-mail, just before the session. Please keep in mind that the Zoom personal log-in is necessary to join Working Groups. If you are a part of Working Group and have not received the personal link, please contact the support team:
