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!
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.
