In conjunction with the OISTAT WorldCongress in Toronto the LDWG had scheduled an open meeting on Tuesday March 15. In spite of changed room designations and rebuiling the room to accomodate a ‘round table’, 25 people participated. It was a very succesfull meeting. Discussions and proposals were made on activities on the upcoming PQ07 as part of the scenofest, the heart of the PQ. It is two more years to go but by conducting these discussions now we hope that a lot can be achieved in reality. I want to thank all the contributers and excuse for the regrets. Contact will be held with these participants of whom almost all of them expressed interest to participate in one or another way to the activities to be held. Also the participants of earlier meetings that had not been able to attend this meeting will be involved in the further process. In due time I will bring a full report of this meeting so that all are able to reflect and add as appropriate. With the new possibilities of the website, I hope this is a new start of ever ongoing meetings and activities, communication and collaboration, celebrating the life of light. Keep in touch and visit the website regularly (and add)
