Mark, Athina,

Good to discuss ideas with you today and apologies that i was late for joining the session (as unexpected urgent work stuff came!).

As i briefly mentioned, it is really important to have focus on Education esp. developing and making available good quality teaching and training materials on open geospatial standards (aimed at different levels - Introductory, Medium, Advanced etc) in Creative commons licences so that it is open and freely available to everyone and staff in universities worldwide can make use of them for teaching their students. Remember, students of today are the geospatial leaders of tomorrow.

Planning a webinar program series ( 1 hour maximum) aimed at education and outreach should also be considered. There should be course structure developed for the webinar program , so that it follows a structure and covers the course content .All webinars should be made available open to everyone (not just OGC members) for maximum outreach.

Thanks again for the opportunity to provide some thoughts.

Best wishes,
