It is already two months since the L&G Journey took place during the WCC Forum in Barcelona.
The Journey went well and its events were extremely well attended. Highlights included the six workshops organized by Specialist Groups of CEL, and by the ELC. A small group of CEL volunteers helped the Journey Guide to keep track of as many events as possible – quite a task considering their sheer numbers.
After the Forum, all events organizers were asked to file a brief report and outline the main outputs of their meeting. Most of the L&G Journey organizers have done so, and the ELC is pleased to post this material below. Note that presentations and reports from all the Congress Forum events are available through the interactive Forum Resource Centre.
The next step includes considering these reports, especially their outputs and recommendations – to determine how to follow up.
