|Home (or pub!)
'''The opening session on Day 1''' is to bring everyone up to date on where we are so far. At the end of each day there will be a session for work groups to update the wider group on what they've worked on, and where necessary this will include a sociocratic decision-making round with
workgroups running proposals.
In addition to the
workgroups there will also be discussions that participants can chose to run and also attend. People can attend these as they wish. ''Please fill in your discussion on the timetable above if you would like to host one'', and/or post on the forum (see link below):

The gathering will be at [http://dinavenue.com/ DINA], 32 Cambridge Street, Sheffield S1 4HP (city centre). It has disabled access, and a vegetarian/vegan cafe (10am-4pm). Parking nearby is expensive, but it is only a few minutes walk from train and bus stations.
DINA is an independent venue, a not-for-profit social enterprise. The building, originally the city's first Free School, was disused and renovated by volunteers in 2016. It is now a huge two floor performance and event venue with 5 discreet spaces.
