Hello!  Use this page to propose sessions, short talks, posters

TNOC Summit is meant to spark conversations across ways of knowing & modes of action to build a new collaborative, transdisciplinary & co-productive movement for green cities that are just, livable, healthy, resilient & sustainable. Everyone is welcome in this spirit of conversation. Session types are designed to promote dialogue over "presentations". Read about the vision of TNOC Summit at www.tnoc-summit.org. NOTE: you can propose something here, but you must be a registered participant to be & present at the Summit.

MicroTalk and Poster proposals are open until 1 April.
Seed and Skills Sessions are technically still open,
but we are already reviewing proposals, so get your idea in as soon as possible, so we can fit you in.

There are 5 types of sessions or presentations available. You can propose more than 1, but you have to make a separate entry for each. MAKE SURE YOU COMPLETE ALL THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR SESSION TYPE.
 
SEED SESSION: Synthetic ideas that find expression in example works or projects are the focus of interactive workshops and will be the "Seeds" around which small mixed-discipline groups will gather to talk about how they can contribute and different parts of the world can benefit.

Seed Sessions start with short scene-setting talks—perhaps several examples of a similar idea—followed by workshop discussion. These sessions are NOT about presenting your work—they are about creating a dialogue and exploring ideas. Propose a seed and a process that can attract diverse people to a vibrant discussion. Think about what the output could be. And what the activity would be.
 
SKILLS SESSION: Skills Sessions are trainings and teaching. E.g., things like "Storytelling Techniques", or "Writing Workshops". Or, perhaps you have a valuable tool or technique to teach. 
 
PARTNER-LED SESSION: Partners to TNOC Summit can propose a session with their own format or style. Want to be a Partner? Write us.
 
MICROTALK: 3-minute presentations with 1 slide. Presenters sit in a circle, with the audience sitting outside the circle. After the presentations, the entire group (presenters & audience) participate in an open discussion, in the style of a Fishbowl*. A summary of your talk—up to 250 words—will be published in the Proceedings. MicroTalks will be grouped together in 1 of the 5 pillar themes of the Summit (resilience, sustainability, health, livability, justice), without reference to discipline. That is, talks will be gathered into mixed points of view within pillars.

Worried about a 3- minute talk? Don't be—it's a really dynamic format, with lots of potential for exchange of ideas.
 
* Fishbowls are a discussion format in which people are gathered in a circle facing the middle. In the middle are 5 chairs, 1 of which is always empty. Only the 4 people in the middle may speak, but anyone at anytime can take the empty chair, and 1 person must depart, making a new empty chair. The 4 who begin in the middle are prompted: "What did you hear in the talks that moved or affected you?" The conversation proceeds where it will.

POSTERS: Posters will be presented and attended in Networking Cafes on the same theme. A summary—up to 250 words—will be published in the proceedings.
