The programme will be exhaustive, no doubt. I'm one of the CSO-based volunteers, so I didn't have to pay any fees but will have mainly work to do there. I plan to check out the exhibition and perhaps some plenary sessions in spare time. Or run off to school in the evening .

We've been briefed on safety. The Congress Centre building has its own fire department. We got numbers to call, hands-on experience with CO2 extinguishers and retractable fireproof walls. The view out to the north...
