# Hello India!

This event aims to gather open-source sustainers, maintainers and contributors from all fields to hold conversations about open-source. This will be the first SustainOSS event in India, and I look forward to seeing you all. 

The agenda will include round-circle activities and breakout sessions on specific topics. Ensuring everyone can contribute and take back actionable steps to improve their FOSS journey on a contributor, organization or community level.

At SustainOSS India, there are no talks, sponsor demos, or keynotes. Your undivided attention will be required. Phones and laptops will not be used throughout, and you will be asked to put devices away if they distract you or anyone else. 

## Agenda

Each breakout room will have 2-3 topics running parallel where contributors can discuss ideas, document action items and pool together collective insights on a topic. In the end, folks can present what they learned, what they intend to work towards and the feedback received. Here's how the meetup will run:

  • - Registration, greetings, introductions
  • - Breakout room 1 
  • - Breakout room 2 
  • - Break
  • - Breakout room 3 
  • - Breakout Exhibition
  • - Closing Remarks, Photographs, Networking and Lights out

## Topics for breakout rooms

- Open source for society and citizens 
  1. - Building Ethical AI
  • - Open Source Licensing
  • - Sustain the People: Burnout, Mental Health & Inclusive Communities
  • - Open-Source done right: Company's responsibilities towards OSS

Follow this page for updates as they come. Reach out if you have any questions! This event is under a Code of Conduct to create a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
