The Proposals: how they will be made

Policy Proposals will be presented after the Creative Debate Sessions.

Structure of the Policy Forum
The innovative ideas and proposals developed in the Creative Debates will be presented to the public in a unique format. Each Creative Debate group will be assigned to a designated area of the conference hall. As the public walks among these groups, the policy sponsors from the Creative Debate groups will present their ideas to the public, trying to gain their support through brief presentations. Members of the public will then evaluate the proposed policies on a grading system, using the following criteria:

• Is the idea persuasive?
• Are the components logical?
• Is the idea relevant?
• Can the idea be implemented?

The results of these evaluations will be posted on the Atocha Workshop Blog. This exercise will serve two purposes. It will give feedback to policy sponsors as to the general acceptance of their ideas, and it will give the public a way to transform concern into action.
