Re-aligning the WOSC Congress with Covid-19 effects
This year’s Covid-19 has affected all of us deeply at a personal, organisational, national and global level. Some of you are already heavily engaged in activities related to suppressing its effects, others will probably participate in change processes after the events give way to a more normal life. It will require systemic and cybernetic insights to steer the new situation to an equilibrium that increases the chances of health, equality and viability to all stakeholders in society.
The WOSC Organising Committee
Online event 16th to 17th of September 2020
Programme and Video presentations
Key contributors to WOSC 2021 Congress kindly agreed to record in advance of the event a 10/15 minutes (video or ppt) presentations focused on their WOSC 2020 themes.
The content of the WOSC 2020 Online event will consist of the published videos and the on-line round-table programme.
Roundtable participants will have the opportunity to hear in advance the views of other participants. For their contributions to the roundtables they may prepare ppt presentations for talks of no more than 10 minutes. Discussions will be moderated as will be questions of registered people to the event (these questions will be filtered by the moderator before reaching the roundtable).
Technology: We will use the Zoom platform and the sessions will have technical moderators.
Programme: The two days online event will start the 16th and finish the 17th of September. Each of the first two days will last for four hours to allow spreading time zones in the programme. After the on-line event a three hours meeting of members of the WOSC 2020/2021 Strategic, Organisational and Programme committees will take place.
