Eager to learn more about what’s happening at the cutting edge of climate assembly practice and theory? Do you want to know how your fellow officials, practitioners, researchers and activists are shaping the future of assemblies? 

Then the KNOCA innovation market on Tuesday 5 March, 2-4pm is the place to be! 
If you have not been to one of our innovation markets before, you’re in for a treat. Fellow KNOCA members give short pitches of their ideas and practices. You choose which one you want to learn more about and discuss further in breakout groups. You get to do this twice.
