Jan. 24th [special chat meeting]

This chat meeting will concentrating on the structures and responsibilities within the "International Student Movement".

The idea is to decentralize everything more and have different activists/ groups administer networking efforts in certain regions. Furthermore we can communicate in many more languages, if we unite. This is very important to spread the word about this platform and truly unite internationally and globally.

It is totally up to each person/group how much time and effort s/he wants to contribute, but the responsibilities need to be coordinate.

Therefore I invite all those interested in getting more involved and discussing the structures of the ISM to join the chat this sunday at 4pm GMT / 5pm CET.
