Strategic Framework
Seigo is working on the agenda for the workshop, he will post soon a presentation in support of the discussion scheduled for Sep 8 at 7 GMT
Silvia will open a separate topic for the workshop under BoST
We emphasized that it is important for us to build on the past work, to show respect for the effort made by colleagues who are not active now and to ensure continuity of purpose, while keeping our thoughts/statements/language clear, simple and grassroots

Roadmapping workshop with Jaime: vote is closed, the date is Aug 24.

Global Projects
Gien reminded us about the need to expand our global reach and leverage our platform better in working with others every day. He wants us to adopt the cosmo-localization concept and work towards implementing it. He is interested in agro-forestry projects, among others, especially for places where a natural disaster requires complete reconstruction. Example: Greensburg, Kansas https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/greenhouse/2013/04/13/greensburg-kansas/2078901/

Silvia wants to work on the Guide to OSCE book. Waiting for Frans to respond if he wants to lead the project, before posting it under Activities and start working on it. Check updates on Google drive.
Seigo mentioned as an opportunity for collaboration organizations that work with social and economic integration after prison.
