  • GSC Meeting Closure:  Summary of main conclusions and next steps - Closing remarks - evaluation - Thursday, 17 June from 14h00 to 15h30 CEST.

Side sessions: Participants are not expected to attend all of them but rather select those that resonate with their interest. All sessions are open to everyone and they will be recorded. They were as follows:

  • GSC Working Group or Community of Practice presentations: All the GSC WGs and CoPs will present the highlights of their work in a very short petcha-kucha style format allowing for questions. All WG and CoPs will be jointly presented in 2 sessions.
  • Thematic sessions: addressing some key issues of interest to the cluster partners. 
  • Open Space discussions: These are 45' slots available to discuss any topic that anyone would like to share with other shelter cluster partners. Any topic is welcomed from a proposal of a new global initiative to a good practice from the field. Topics can be submitted in this link before the 1st June.
