A GNSO outreach is something we should test and see how it turns out.

>> Maryam just sent me the blocked schedule and it seems like Saturday, GNSO
>> council is gonna have sessions all day!!!! which makes my suggestion
>> absolutely pointless. I will talk to Heather about this. We can't afford a
>> three hour session at all on Saturday. I find it bizarre that GNSO has all
>> day PDP meeting in parallel to outreach.
>> I have on Sunday NCSG in-reach session which newcomers from civil society
>> are welcome to join and see what we do at NCSG. I probably leave it at that.
