Mastermind sessions to collaborate on specific topics

Some topics benefit more from a strong collaboration in a small group than a large knowledge sharing. ESSMA selected two topics to discuss in a smaller setting: the ban on pesticides in pitch management and the entrance of single-use plastics. The goal is to gather no more than 15 participants in each session to discuss the topic, more precisely, the situation in the stadiums participating in the mastermind session. That means we expect a small preparation, which gives an overview of the current situation and pitfalls. As seats are limited, there will be a first-come first-serve principle. To attend a mastermind session, you need a general ESSMA Spotlight ticket.
