During lockdown in the face of the Covid 19 pandemic, convenings are remote and digital by necessity. Digital Action and the European Partnership for Democracy have compiled some of the initial lessons from one virtual convening in the early stages of lockdown to help others organising similar sessions.
There is an opportunity here, too: learning how to maximise the benefit of virtual meetings means that in the longer term we may be able to reduce the amount we need to travel.
These lessons are based on inputs from participants, and are broken into two sections: lessons for future convenings, including a host of other resources; and feedback on this specific convening, shared here in the spirit of gratitude for those who gave us feedback.
