Prior to the talk, François wrote this:

As part of my preparation for this conversation, I crated this workspace and humbly submit it to the other participants as a extension to the conversation and as a way to keep a record of links and important points to remember. It is my experience that proposing an agenda beforehand introduces a huge bias in the conversation and I would like to keep as much room as possible for free conversation during the talk. Therefore, I will put in writing what I think is important for me (I point out and ackowledge the local and personal bias of my perspective) to remember from previous conversations. Going backwards, here are the links to the previous conversations and work that has been done under the name of the VIA22 collaborative process :

VIA22F conversation :

(chosen exerps)

inspired by the student protest movement in Quebec in the Spring of 2012 – called for national actions on the 22 of each month- the beauty was no need to decide on a date – everyone knew – many spontanteous actions, big demonstrations; people from many groups – Mexico – that is the origin of the V process – no set a priori definition
the intent is to help people communciate and to share their different struggles

historically we did an open forum on Oct. 22, as the temps dropped we concentrated on building this global conversation since the fall. the intent is really to help sharing tactics with emphasis on creativity – encouraged

Earthday event april 22nd, and continuing toward national convergences – april 22 – plant an actual seed in the ground to renew the earth
seed of communciation – allow people in small communities to come together to have a dinner, music, festive atmosphere and then have a conversation
environment human rights social justice and how we can take steps to make countries more reflective to its people – what we hope is begin this convo on Earth Day and then moving to state communciations and then all the way until August leading to a national and global conversation with us in different areas doing this together and then using our technology to communciate with each other. the people are the glue, more than the technology contact Chris – we list every physical occupation that exists – more and more we should include groups, not just -physical places
anyone can add data – some of the data is outdated – creative ways to
start to tag things: enviromental, justice, social justice, food justice
