*A homegroup is a randomly assigned group of participants. Delegates will be assigned to a random homegroup with people from different countries. The purpose is to work participatively in a new and fresh environment and make friends from different locals.

**A fishbowl conversation can be used when discussing topics within large groups. It allows the entire group to participate 4-5 chairs are arranged in an inner circle. This is the fishbowl. Remaining chairs are arranged in concentric circles. A few participants are selected to fill the fishbowl. The moderator introduces the topic and participants start discussing. Initial participants speak for some time, then leave the fishbowl and a new group from the audience enters. This continues until many audience members have spent some time in the fishbowl. When time runs out the moderator summarizes the discussion.
