Introduction to Risk Assessment for the Caravanserail

I invite you for a workshop in the series "Living together", that I just created. Some are talking about regular weekly meetings, but I'm in for ad hoc meetings with interested people too. As the motto is "just do it". Here it is!

So interested people can join me on Saturday 6 June from 12:00 - 14:30 for a risk assessment workshop. It's the first of a series and will be documented on the web, so we need a minute-taker.  Here is the suggested agreement for discussion:

- We remain focussed. It's not the place to debate of all issues of the Caravanserail, just the ones related to risk management.
- We start with a general group dynamics activity: 10-20 minutes are introductions - how are you feeling - what do you expect periods where everyone is welcome to express him/herself.
- We then take about 10-15 minutes to list all dangers to which we are exposed in the flat.
- We'll try to get to the step of risk assessment and get an initial brainstorming on tool/resources that could be useful.
- This workshop does not aim at production. It has to be followed by a production one later.
