ECOLISE is commited to making all our in-person events inclusive for remote participation of people that choose not to travel (to reduce their own environmental footprint) or are not able to travel for whatever reason. [Are you a Facebook user? Follow the event on Facebook.]
If you register to attend ECOLISE 2019 General Assembly online our recommendation is: don't plan to do anything else during that time. Attending ECOLISE event remotely is active and immersive network weaving experience.
To include remote participants we use Zoom video conferencing online service. We provide fully interactive, 2-way video and audio communication between remote participants and participants on site both for plenaries and for all breakout sessions. All activities are carefully and skillfully co-facilitated by facitators and virtual hosts on site and online hosts joining video conference remotely. In effect, remote participation in ECOLISE event becomes as close to in-person participation as possible, the most important difference being absence of travelling. Time needs to be reserved for active participation and communication with participants online and on site throughout the event. Full focus is required most of the time, so lot of breaks are scheduled.
As remote participants we able to join and actively contribute to all activities from our homes or offices using devices we normally use. Pesonal computer is recommended (with earbuds to hear better), but it is also possible to use tablets or smartphones. All activities are carefully and skillfully co-facilitated by facitators and virtual hosts on site and online hosts that join video conference remotely.
