 [15:50:57] Pierre: Shenjing , my advice would be to do also what was done in Tunisia: 1/ send an invitation to participate remotely in advance .2/ So people interested have just tu contact a public skype name “altertaipeh.extension”  or somehting like this. 3/Then create a chat room with those that asked to contact this skype user “altertaipeh.extension”, so before the workshop starts you have the chat room ready and 4/ they look at the video live form taipeh and they comment it with other remote participants  and with the contact person  in taipeh dedicated to the chatroom


[16:03:49] “Shenjing/pierre” international volunteers from taiwan - 20/30 volunteers, england  france  brazil peru Thailand china Philippines Korea, go for one year !  in france they go to attac, workshop will be english and chinese  - will send the program next week by mail

4 days in taipeh and 4 days in kaoshiung south of Taiwan, is a 8 days program

 the workshop is also open to organization interested, so they come and participate with the volunteers so 60 people present in totality 14th 23 september

 [16:10:44] Pierre: so the volunteers could be proposed when you are recruiting them to form a group to take care of the live video stream and the chat room moderation and contact during the 9 days, they could organize it as a part of their workshop activity . It will bring them contact with people from all over the world, and a first practice of the language  French Spanish English they will use

News from sasf Lusaka

[16:41:31] Pierre: hello sara !

[16:44:19] Sara : Hello all, sorry for joining late

[16:45:02] Pierre: welcome !  there was a good exchange between shenjing  from taiwan and Ibrahim from Palestine you can read the notes above about enlarging on internet two events one in palestine and one in Taiwan southern african participation welcome  in both  :)

[16:48:57] Sara : sorry my skype connection keeps on being disconnected suddenly!

[16:49:19] Pierre: yes we saw this ..may be you can give some information from sasf extended process?

[16:52:21] Sara : Okay, not much since I've been away on family issues. Gershom smsed me a few minutes ago to say that the ROC meeting extended will take place in Johannesburg. He has been in touch with other sasfroc country coordinators.

zamsof is hosting various fundraising activities for SASF logistics.

Shula (our ict-wiz) is out of zambia pn mission, hence no feed on how the extension will be conducted.

[16:57:29] Pierre: a suggestion  is that the sasf extension team could open a second e of action  in parallel to trying to enlarge the Johannesburg meeting

 this  e of action would be  approaching the organizations by clusters to inquire about their intentions /willingness to organize local activities and participate remotely in the cluster discussion in Lusaka in October

this would allow to start some "cluster discussion enlargement team" ( need 16 team  ;) )

i-e people from those organizations coming to Lusaka with their delegation and willing and able (equipment ..) to enlarge the meeting towards their constituency in a mutualized effort

[16:59:00] Pierre: what do you think? ( i have to leave now  - we can go on at a later time )
