Sylvia Caras, People Who

What worked well:

I liked the plenary formats, especially when Kukier and Gowling moderated.

What worked less well:

Site had many deficiencies.

Suggestions for improvements:

Rio site should be fully accessible to people who have trouble with stairs, and completely non-smoking. Low-price meals and 'fast food' should be available. Site should be large enough to accommodate opening session registered and local guests without overpasses. I found choosing between a plenary and workshops difficult. Maybe less overlap? And I would have liked the workshops to be less presenting and more discussing.

Other comments suggestions:

It was helpful to announce the dates a year ahead and I hope this will be done for the subsequent meetings. I am already working out travel plans. More integration of civil society and business, more balance.
