Dear GA participant,
please find herewith information about the logistics of the General Assembly 2017 in Delhi in November:
Motion Presentation during the OWC:
There are 2 sessions of 1,5 hours each regarding World Board and Member Motions in the Main Track of the OWC. The purpose is to present the motions shortly and provide the opportunity for input to the motioner to consider as improvement of the motion.
Session 1. on Thursday, November 09, at 3.00 - 4.20 pm. Session # 3.B.
Session 2. on Friday, November 10, at 3.00 - 4.20 pm. Session # 8.B
At the Motion Bazaar each motioner has a station to present and discuss the motions with the idea to clarify questions related to the motion but also collect input for improving the motion text.
The Motion Bazaar starts right after OWC at the OWC venue on November 11 at 3.00 pm. (Probably Hall of Farmers Track, the halls should soon get a name after an organic pioneer - tbc.)
Please use these two opportunities to discuss the GA motions since the amount and diversity of motions is high and the time to discuss during the GA plenary session very short.
We offer simple accommodation to all GA participants: there are dormitory places (6 people in one room) available in the VYK. The price for a bed in a dormitory is 24 € (12 € per night). Bookings are made for two nights from November 11 to 13. Please apply for a room here. You get the room keys against cash payment in Euros at the VYK after arrival from the Motion Bazaar.
