It’s fine, you can simply help spread the word. Our social media calendar has messages and highlights prepared for you to share. Another thing is to take pictures (different from ones from google image) for Lote on Instagram.

What hashtags for the event?

#LOTE, #Lote3, #unMonastery, #edgeryders, #Matera, #MT2019

Why isn’t there a final event program?

Because Lote is community driven, everyone is invited to contribute. We’re updating the Program as we are receiving more proposals. You too can post about something you want to explore at Lote.

What is a Track?

A track is a collection of sessions united by an epic goal. These goals are the reasons that bring us together. LOTE has 3 major tracks:

UpSkilling for Change, Building the unMonastery, and the unConference on the Edge.

What is a Session?

A session is an atom of activity within LOTE. Generally, it requires a room; materials (post-its, maybe some more specific stuff); someone to lead it (it could be a speaker or a facilitator); participants; and documentation arrangements.

Can I propose a Session?

Yes, we highly encourage that. Please describe your session in 2 paragraphs here.

How can I meet other participants at Lote?

Join us every Friday 11 AM CET in our online call.

When do I book my trip?

Where am I staying in Matera?

Currently we are in touch with the local community: hospitable families, B&Bs or the couchsurfing communities. Either way, we will make it cheap for you. More information soon.
