Dear colleagues,
once more
with some modifications suggested by Marta Medlinska, our
facilitator, mainly:
-a website on Krakow and the suggestion to stay a day longer (or
arrive a day earlier) to visit this remarkable city
-a reduction in the fee from 265 to 260 Euro since she found a
cheaper copying place
Thanks Marta!!
If any of you others have suggestions on the invitation...it is a
work-in-progress document.
Just toss the old one out and use this new one.
And in case you already sent the registration fee (deadline is June
14) I will reimburse the 5 Euro in Krakow.
Have a wonderful summer, spread the word.
Greetings from Berlin

Dear colleagues,
please register now for the first international gathering on the
"InterActive Organization/open space-organization in Europe" taking
place Friday, September 3 and Saturday, September 4, 2004.
Since we announced these dates two months ago, ten new countries have
joined the European Union and 36 people expressed interest in
gathering on the topic of the InterActive Organization in Europe.
Meeting in Krakow, Poland with its old town and Viliczka Saltmine,
both on the list of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, will give us
opportunity to explore the developments and challenges of the
InterActive Organization in the expanded Europe.
In addition, we will engage in the task of planning a longer and
larger gathering on the
issues and opportunities around the emerging InterActive
Organizations in Europe in the year 2005.
Since the tender loving care of the InterActive Organization needs a
sustained, long range effort, we consider the meeting this year,
followed by a second one in 2005 as the beginning of a longer
learning experience...probably a lifelong journey.
