Chapters in smaller communities (pop. < 250k) can face a number of challenges, including:
- lack of/limited diversity in perspective/experience
- high turnover of members (especially true in university towns where members often move to Berlin, Hamburg etc after academics)
As a way to build a stronger OpenTechSchool global community to share learnings and build interest, could we develop an eXchange program where members from one chapter visit an event or Meetup of another chapter?
- Does anyone have interest in traveling to another city (e.g. Göttingen) or hosting someone as a visitor to their group?
- What would be required to establish and sustain such an effort?
