Rootstech and our meeting on Saturday 27th February

We hope to see you at our meeting on Saturday at 2.00pm GMT via Zoom. We will be using the content of the Rootstech talks as a basis for our meeting

Some Rootstech key points to note

  • Event spread – The event runs from Thurs 25th Feb till Saturday 27h February – with event dates extending into Weds and Sunday depending on your time zone.
  • Do not get overwhelmed – There is a lot of material but nearly everything will be made available on demand after it goes live or having been pre-recorded and
  • You do not have to cram  – because the on demand material will be available for 365 days! So you can spread your interest out.

What we would ask – for those of you attending our Zoom meeting on Saturday

  • Choose one or more talk/session of interest to you that has some connection to the Caribbean and/or DNA for example
  • Session links below
  • Watch it and consider 
    • key learning points you take from it, 
    • how you would summarise it
    • be willing to share this to initiate a discussion in out group meeting
  • In that way we are hoping to have a number of relevant topics to discuss in group during the hour (approximate) we have allocated for this in the meeting – see agenda below
