Voice Chat Meeting - August 19th
Continuing Coordinations for the
GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE
Following the positive experiences with the open source voice chat software Mumble during the chat meetings on August 5 and August 11 participants decided to call for the next meeting on Mumble on August 19 (sunday). The meeting will be used to update each other and continue coordinations for the GLOBAL EDUCATION STRIKE together.
Mumble includes a chatroom. You can also participate without a microphone.

::: How to join the Voice Chat Meeting :::
August 19th (sunday) -- 11am EST, 3pm UTC, 5pm CET, 8.30pm IST
(to check what time 3pm UTC is for you: www.timeanddate.com)
Now, Mumble can be used on computers and mobiles - just follow these steps to set it up:
DONE! you are now connected to the server.
Now, look for the sub-channel 'Global Education Strike' of 'Assemblies and Round Tables' and drop your profile in there.
You can mute and un-mute yourself by clicking the mic symbol on the top bar. To speak you need to un-mute yourself and keep the 'push-to-talk' button pressed. To configue your 'push-to-talk' button go to: 'Configure' > 'Settings' > 'Shortcuts'.
It is probably a good idea if everyone tries to install and enter the channel in advance.
Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org, if you experience any problems and we will try to support you.
