Co-create the agenda

The agenda is a diverse collection of discussions and interactive sessions that are developed in collaboration with confirmed participants. We employ an interactive and participatory approach to convenings, and work to specifically address the outcomes that will be most useful and relevant to everyone who attends.

We invite you to bring your stories, ideas, questions, and knowledge to share.

To get a sense of what the event will be like, you can check out the 2017 agenda and session notes which were co-created with participants.
