#4 Video conferencing
whenever you are not speaking during a video conference – please switch off your microphone and camera if possible. There is a connection between the number of cameras / microphones are turned on and the amount of Megabytes you will need to upload/ download the stream of the conference. So whenever it is possible and not disturbing you – please try to keep it off to save bandwith for our servers.
#5 Internet connection
To make sure that everybody understands you in seminars, workshops or in other circumstances please make sure to have a good internet connection. We know that it is sometimes not so easy, but maybe it is possible to follow the conference at a place where you have a good connection.
#6 No hate speech or involvement of conflicts
We are all members of the civil society and therefore we are the ambassadors of peace. May it be the conflict in the region of Nagorno Karabakh, Donbas region, region of Transnistria, Belarus or other parts of Eastern Europe. Please always have in mind that we are here to stay in contact with each other and find ways to overcome conflicts. Politicans are dividing societies and missusing their power for their own interest. The Funding programme of the Federal Foreign Office started in 2014 to keep civil societies of the Eastern Partnership countries, Russia and Germany together and find peaceful ways to solve conflicts. It is our responsibilty to build bridges between countries and establish a dialogue for a sustainable future together. We do not accept hate speech or the involvement of any transnational conflicts here and want to keep this conference environment peaceful and respectful.
Civil society actors from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, France, Georgia, Germany, Moldova, Poland, Russia and Ukraine who are working within the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and who are ready to find an international partner-organisation and implement a cross-border project together.
