Programme

For this retreat, we will follow an unconference model. Except for the plenary sessions, all activities are optional.

Before the Retreat, participants are asked to propose topics for the team work in the morning. Topics will run through all morning sessions (instead of many small topics, we work on a few big ones).

On Monday evening we will decide together which teams will work on what, and who joins which team. The idea is not to follow one team lead, but to all be able to take up sub tasks that we are interested in. On Friday the teams will present the outcomes of the work to all.

Participants can also propose to organise shorter sessions in the afternoons, or lead other (outdoor) activities, using an unconference board in the main room of the Retreat.

And lastly, participants can volunteer to join the mentoring programme, in which we will connect pairs of participants that can learn from each other. More info to follow after registration.
