Task Force on Under-represented Groups in Surveying
Report on the open Task Force meeting on Friday 4
FIG Working Week in Sun City, South Africa.
The contents of this meeting concerned the "Draft Discussion Document on the future Governance and Management of FIG" and especially the issue of the "Need for Involvement of the New Generation of Contributors to FIG". This document is published with the agenda and appendices for the 22nd General Assembly.
The meeting was well attended and the bright discussion generated a wide range of ideas:
The participants proposed
1. to encourage the Hosts of Congresses and Working Weeks
to fix a lower fee for students,
to enable the attendance of 20 students, like in Brighton or Melbourne, to assist the organisers,
to evaluate the participants concerning gender, age and Commissions,
to mark the name tags of participants attending the first time a Congress or Working Week, to facilitate an integration,
to provide meeting points with tea and coffee or lunch, like in Sun City.
2. to encourage the Member Associations
3. to encourage the Commissions
4. to encourage the General Assembly
The Task Force will continue to work on these items.
