Instructions for Moderators:

  • Introduce yourself in the beginning of the breakout

  • Make sure everyone has the chance to speak. Don’t hesitate to jump in if you see someone is monopolising the conversation

  • If someone is saying something interesting, ask things like: why do you think that is? anyone else here have experienced the same situation?

  • Don’t worry about the time, we have 15 minutes total and the breakout sessions will be closed by the technical moderator

  • Take notes in the chat or computer - keep track of who says what, just the important things if you can’t type very fast. Save the notes and keep them and we’ll ask you to post them later!

  • Smile!

Script for your introduction (if you need it)

Hello everyone, it’s good to meet you, my name is x, I come from y and live in z, and I will be moderating the group discussion for 15 minutes. The goal is to answer together an important question. Because our time is limited, I ask you to each reflect on this:

Where are your personal obstacles to working in a way that promotes food sustainability?
Maybe something said in the session was relevant to you, maybe you’re facing other obstacles? Take a few seconds to think about it… and whoever wants to start can do it. This should be a friendly chat where we share with each other.

I am trying to get into the meeting, which I believe has started, but it tells me it is waiting for the host and just spins. Oh wait - a check of the time seems to indicate that I am now 8 hours away instead of 9.

It’s in 45 mins John…

The clocks here change tomorrow night. Looks like they changed already over there.
