General Assembly

Saturday, January 21

9:00 am to 5:00 pm

Join us in the Event Cafe (L1) at the University Center, 63 5th Ave, or virtually via Zoom at primary or overflow.

Please remember to wear a mask for those attending in person; masks will also be available on-site.

We start with a temperature check, reflecting on recent events while thinking about the way forward. We'll learn the history and values of our institution, understand how participatory budgeting works at the University of Rosario, Argentina, and then see what work people have engaged in within their classes, departments, and divisions.

We break for lunch at noon and then shift gears to build a plan of action that informs the coalition's progression. We'll discuss the proposed blueprint and form working groups to meet our short- and long-term goals. We'll end the evening with a review of the session.
