A continuum of interactions, events, and fora

The Panel will organize different formats of scientific and participatory dialogue events with relevant partners to share knowledge, experience and solutions with interested actors, stakeholders and changemakers. Among a wide array of formats, these activities will often take the form of scientific events, implementation workshops, and dissemination conferences. Most events will be hybrid to maximize attendance as well as to reduce the ecological footprint. The format of “flipped conferences” (where background material and video presentations are available and disseminated before the event) will be implemented to concentrate on the Q&A and to spur practical and concrete exchanges among participants.

IPSP events will be held on each continent to ensure that civic, social, economic, policy and scholarly communities are reached. The individuals and institutions partnering with IPSP will provide a strong basis for organizing decentralized events; IPSP authors, reviewers and contributors —through their home institutions and their professional networks or project funding— may also wish to help co-fund their actions while benefiting from the overall IPSP infrastructure.

When relevant, the Secretariat will provide support to help organize such events with speakers from the IPSP community (Honorary Committee, Advisory Board, Contributors’ Network, etc.). The Panel members will take part in events organized by IPSP partners: leading international organizations, civil societies organizations, international foundations, university networks, national, regional or local governments, business organizations, media, etc.
