Session format

Begins with a series of short presentations about each initiative, maximum 5 minutes. This will be followed by a presentation of the budget identifier, which will serve as a response to the first 3 presentations. What do they provide? What is missing? How do they relate to each other? These questions having been addressed, the panel will reflect on the previous presentations, and then open the conversation to the audience.
