I am sorry, but this date (Tuesday 18:30-20:30) does not work with me. I do not know how the dates were chosen, but I have a defence of my dissertation on that day, so I definitely won’t be ready to coordinate a jitsi meeting in the evening.
I would prefer to organizce a call to coordinate the preparation of my chapter by a poll, so people can chose dates that suit them. (as I have done it previously)

The dates were selected by the thematic coordinators. In those cases where the thematic coordinators didn’t give me any suggestions for time slots, as I had asked in an email, they were chosen by me.

It is unfortunate that the slot won’t work. I can send out a cancellation, or try to find someone to facilitate it in your absence.

Given that the thematic coordinators are supposed to be able to present a final draft for the Strasbourg conference this Saturday, and thus no meetkngs will be scheduled after this Wednesday, I don’t really think there are much time to conduct a poll for when to have the jitsi meeting.

Dear all,

due to conflicting schedules we have had to reschedule the jitsi meetings for Drug Policy and Net Policy to Thursday this week. Exact time slots will be announced later today.

Hi everyone, just a really quick note to express a slight frustration about the timing. The email with notification that there will be meetings was sent one day before the first scheduled call, with the rest falling to Easter, which includes 2 bank holidays in CZ.
I understand that there was a previous agreement to have the programme finished in April but I am a bit worried about the actual participation.


Hi @Zireael,

I fully understand your frustration! I am doing the best I can to help move this project forward, but the fact that the Discourse came online a bit over 2 months after the original launch date, and the fact that we didn’t wanted to delay the physical meeting in Strasbourg, meant that it has all been a bit rushed. For that you have my deepest apologies. Hopefully this will be something we can improve for next time.
