April Update

Monthly Meeting, Weekly Sessions, and watching The Social Dilemma

Author: Charles Adjovu

April Monthly Meeting

We held our monthly meeting on April 3rd. You can find the meeting notes here.

Weekly Sessions

We will be holding weekly sessions to shorten the length of the monthly meeting. The weekly sessions will cover:

  1. Expert topics (mostly centered on projects, research updates and tools),

  2. Citizen-topics (mostly centered on learning and getting involved), and

  3. Discussion (mostly centered on brainstorming and issue articulation, and a watching or listening session).

New Readings

We will be hosting a watch session of The Social Dilemma in the next month. Add your availability here on when2meet.
