Minute of CFTT's Meeting
2010-05-23 15:15:54 GMT
Today's meeting held but the turn out was not too encouraging, but nevertheless great ideas were generated from the meeting. The list you can d is to take a look it and make our own contribution.
1. Without dedicated people it will be impossible to move CFTT forward
2. CFTT needs to identify its niche
3. We need to do an audit of who can contribute what time. How many hours a month from available person
4. We need to establish achievable goals which are not already covered by other organisations
5. CFTT can encourage young people to write articles about the issues and publish them regularly in the Journal. The organisers become mainly editors and publishers. That involves less commitment of time.
6. CFTT need to do more of teleconferencing and presentations
7. CFTT could try to get information in the press/newspapers/TV/radio and provide people for interview (it will be centered around a themes but we will get perspective from various countries and regions)
8. CFTT can also conduct audit of colleges and universities energy policies, and also their teaching materials and priorities
9. CFTT needs lots of energetic individuals to volunteer few hours (maybe 10-15) per month
It will be good if we all take a look and join the discussion.
I hope to hear from you very soon.
