Evolution Panel

This panel has been created to confirm our progress and to avoid spreading information twice. Please add information to clubs, websites etc. when you posted information somewhere or have the feeling that things are missing here.

To help with the coordination we have three tools:

  • An evolution panel (this page), to see which clubs/websites/mailing lists have been contacted already.


  • Make a press release in as many languages as possible. Post it on the website there if you have a profile, or on this wiki but then add a link to it here, or on the website, or somewhere someone will notice and move it to the website.

- Italian press-release: done (valentina)

  • Design a flyer in your own language, with your own taste and skills. We can have many different design.
  • Contacted a platform of ungrouth movements in Catalunya Decreixement to get support for the Barcelona meeting.
  • Tau published an article on Cafebabel.orgabout the 6810 project. They translated the article and published it in 5 languages (english, italian, catalan, spanish, french). The article can be used for CS promotion and press-release (DONE)


Groups Hitchhikers[5], Barcelona[6], Portugal[7] and Lisboa[8].

There is an EVENT created on CS for people to sign up in the Meeting in Barcelona [9] EVENT for Sines: http://www.couchsurfing.org/meetings.html?mid=81140

TO DO LIST: Create CS-events in the pre-meeting cities or where we want to promote the gathering: use your own language, the press-release and the article from Cafè Babel for the promotion.

Portugues version (to be spread in other CS groups) [10]

Find contact-people in different coun tries for the press-coordination: so far we have Robin for The Netherlands, Tau and Mitsch for Spain, Mitsch for France.
