Dear Anriette

Thanks for the heads-up on this. Goodness, 20 years already since Beijing!

There is so much that has, and has not happened around Section J too.

Looking forward to hearing the report back after the event.. Had a quick 
look at the website. Are there remote participation opportunities?
After the cranky bandwidth at Unesco last week, hope there is!

best wishes
