How to navigate the agenda

How can you actively participate in discussions?

  • Raise your hand and ask a question

    During the sessions you can raise your hand by simply clicking on the icon in the integrated mainstage.

    The moderators will see your raised hand and if there's time, they will call your name and give you the ability to unmute your microphone.
    => Please be prepared to unmute yourself!

  • The chat functions

    Each program item has its own chat, which is visible to all participants. Here you can post your questions or comments. As far as possible, the speakers will take them up during the event and include them in the discussion.

How can you get in contact with other participants?

Every event lives from the interactions between the participants and therefore from you! It's a pity that we can't meet in person this time, but we would like to offer you a few opportunities to interact with each other:

  • Interaction sessions

    During the event we will have different interactive sessions. Most of these sessions will be using Zoom. Please make sure you have the latest version of the Zoom application installed on your computer.

    To join these sessions, just click on its agenda point on the timeline nelow the livestream.
    For each interactive session a moderator will give you an explanation and guide you through, so make sure to join these sessions on time to not miss the introduction and the fun.

  • Meet & Greet listing of participants

    Here you can make yourself known to others or see who else is attending the conference. The participant listing is optional. Whether you want to be listed or what information and contact details you want to share is up to you! The data is only visible for registered participants and will not be published after the event.

    You can filter the participants list according to the country or the organization people are working with.

  • Pinboard

    Here you can pin images, documents, a short profile, questions, offers, reqests but you can also promote your projects or initiatives. You can imagine it as a digital pinboard.

  • Photo challenge

    Let's have some fun at the photo challenge and share a photo showing how you follow this year's DP. You can access the photo challenge in the navigation bar at the top after logging in.
