Videoconferences at Local and Regional Meeting Points, will be organized between, July 30th, 2018 and August 2nd, 2018.

Proposed Regional Meeting Point[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

At the proposed Regional or Local Meeting Points (LMP/RMP) scientist with different background and expertise come together to allow a cross-diciplinary face to face communication. The video conferencing system connects the LMPs and RMPs with eachother. Even if possible try to avoid connecting to the EFG-SGH-CoP meeting as a single user. In the previous year we have used framing office hours for the meeting from different time zones. In 2018 the time zone of +8h will be optimal, for Western Australia, China, Indonesia. The concept of LMPs and RMPs is used have

  • econmic benefits, for the reduction of travel benefits
  • environmental benefits with the reduction of Greenhouse Gas and
  • participatory benefits that participants cannot afford the international travel can join and share their ideas.

The LMP/RMP concept was tested/piloted at UN-Campus in Bonn in 2012
