The program will include practical workshops, skill sharing, presentations, tours and exploration of local environment. We believe strongly in participant driven learning and encourage all who join the meeting to share knowledge with the project community. There will be time to share our own projects during the gathering days. We also want to place priority on participant led workshops.
