    Local Hubs for stsing's GA

    The hub format fulfils several purposes; it allows members to meet and mingle without having to travel long-distance and keeping personal, economic and environmental resources low. The hubs also embody the decentralised organising of stsing, and serve as a way to network among and gain access to the community. We, therefore, encourage members to travel to a nearby hub or organise and advertise their own local gatherings.

    stsing e.V. supports the hubs with a little care-package and offers technical advice on hybrid conferencing.

    For pre-registration to attend one of the local hubs for the upcoming second General Assembly, just pre-register via this padlet.
