Meetings in a virtual world

Even though we couldn’t meet in person this year, we were able to organize many public events, bringing together our members and stakeholders. These virtual exchanges allowed for discussions on a wide variety of topics and the exchange of best practice on hot topics. Moving things online also had the added benefit of making them more accessible, allowing us to reach a diverse audience and bring in different voices.

In total, we hosted 24 events this year, including 21 webinars and three forum type-events.
