The 4 zoom rooms from the week will work as meeting rooms for discussions :
And Trondheim will be running a World cafe discussion with 25 participants — already set and nicely prepared.
Chairpersons, Speakers and co-authors join their respective zoom rooms ; meaning you join the room where you were Chairperson, Speaker or co-author (if you have several choices please choose your favorite room :) ).
Each room will be coordinated by a small core group, as follows :
Ostrom core group in Plymouth : Winnie, Rachel, Richard ;
Meadows core group "in" Siena : Bethany, Cristina, Quino and Cristinita :)
Margulis core group "in" Menorca) : Salud, Eva, Maria and Montse ;
Gaia core group in Plouzané) : Ika, Juan, Joelle, Denis and Christophe.
In Trondheim, we have Bettie, Martin and Andy as a core group who will be running a World cafe discussion with 25 participants — already set and nicely prepared.
In each of the 4 Rooms, participants will be split into smaller groups using zoom’s Breakout Rooms function.
In the smaller groups we go for the same 3+1 questions, with one Pad per group, collectively managed & with a 777-word limit with, as an option : an image, a quote and a metaphor.
Questions for All groups.
. In the UN Treaty, what approaches do we want to see for eliminating plastic pollution, keeping in mind the entire plastic production to post-consumer chain ? What approaches must be avoided ?
. What do we consider as key evidence we in the MICRO community can provide to support the UN Treaty negotiations ? What is most important for policy makers to understand about plastics and plastic pollution ?
. If the intention is to stop plastic pollution, what are the implications for plastic research moving forward ? And how can our research contribute to assessing the effectiveness of policies & approaches to eliminate plastic pollution ?
And to close the small group question-focused discussions, the +1 question :
. Any images, quotes or metaphors you wish to add, to represent your thoughts ?
The Core Group in each room explains the activity & uses zoom Breakout Rooms to divide participants into small groups. Each small group decides who will be their moderator/s.
Each group works as they wish through the 3 +1 questions, documenting their inputs on a Pad (with a word limit of 777 words with, as an option : an image, a quote and a metaphor.
The small groups reconvene in their Room to briefly share key points from their discussions, adjusting their Pads as they wish along the way.
