CIICA Events

We have two types of CIICA EVENTS: CIICA LIVE and CIICA CONVERSATIONS.

CIICA LIVE events have presentations from our global Community Members on a specific topic that has been suggested, and discussion is encouraged in the chat room. They last 90 minutes, are captioned and the presentations are available afterward for those who missed them or would like to share them.

CIICA CONVERSATIONS are for small groups to discuss a suggested topic for a short time: one hour. The conversations are facilitated by some of our Community Members, captioned and the summary of the issues which emerged are published on the website afterward.

Below you can see the forthcoming Events and those which have already taken place. Do have a look at previous topics that interest you – and share the presentations and the summaries.
