The 16 regional Coffee Sessions have been important platforms for connection and exchange in times of crisis and isolation. More than 800 persons have been part of the conversations in the meetings and many have followed the live streamings on Facebook (23.000 views).
ASSITEJ will continue the online meetings over the coming months. The two first sessions we can announce are:
Manifesto – points of action
Some of the regional coffee sessions elaborated a manifesto for TYA in the present times of crisis. These two meetings will engage with the global membership and identify possible actions on national, regional and global levels.
