Participants will have the opportunity to share and discuss their own experience with peers during a share fair. This session will contribute to the creation of links and partnerships between participants and to sharing of information. It will help to identify new areas of interest and interaction in RAS. At the share fair, GFRAS working groups and the secretariat will present and discuss activities and results.

Participants are called to prepare creative and interactive inputs using tools and methods such as mini workshops, videos, panels, posters, theatre, etc. Each contribution will take 10 minutes, followed by a 15 minute discussion. Several contributions will be presented in parallel in one room. Interested participants will organise their contribution independently, logistically supported by the GFRAS secretariat.
