IV. EMPOW workshop

An in-person event is planned, spanning Friday afternoon (Oct. 8, 2021, 3–6 pm) and Saturday morning (Oct. 9, 2021, 10 am–1 pm). Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, the workshop will primarily take place outdoors. For this purpose, working walks in small groups will be organized or covered outdoor seating will be prepared. The plenary work will take place in LMU rooms and there will be catering in the garden of the LMU Institute of Sociology (Konradstr. 6). The Institute will be the meeting point for the working walks.

For those who arrive on Friday and cannot check in at the hotel before the workshop starts, there will be a possibility to store luggage safely on site (lockable room at the institute).

The workshop will be held in German and English.

Small groups of 2–3 people will be formed for the walks. To promote networking, participants from different locations will be mixed; matching can also take into account individual preferences (e.g. language, interests, etc.).

Possible work assignments for the small groups could include, for example, feedback on the peer survey in Munich, new ideas for the list of topics collected by the Ethics working group, or ideas for the preparation of the European Public Health Conference, where we will hold a workshop. Participants can continue to suggest topics and split into groups based on their interests.

For the working walks, the English Garden is particularly suitable (about 10 minutes’ walk from the Institute; one of Munich’s tourist sights).

Individual participants who cannot or do not wish to take part in the working walks can, if necessary, form their own working group, which will remain at the institute during the relevant time.

If possible, participants should bring weatherproof clothing (sturdy shoes, jacket and umbrella if necessary) so that the working walks can be conducted even in less-than-ideal weather.

If the weather is very bad, the working groups can be split up into different rooms.
