As we gear up for this open collaborative world-wide Climate/Mobility Challenge 2019 project — see http://bit.ly/2D8DNJR for some first references — this would seem like an ideal time to ensure that the roughly fifteen thousand-plus international colleagues are efficiently connected, taking advantage of the free communications packages which are at our disposal. So, this is to invite you to get online at your convenience with Skype and WhatsApp, both of which we have used extensively and easily for some years and for both free one-on-one and group communication. Quickly now:
SKYPE: if you do not have it in hand, a free download is available at https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/. If you are already there, our address is newmobility (in one word). Give us a call in working hours so we can heck it out.
WHATSAPP: https://www.whatsapp.com/download/ for both phone and PC versions. Once you are online you can reach us and handshake via: +335 5088 9787 (no spaces).
OTHER : we are also directly reachable via: E. email@example.com Tel + Messages at +335 5088 9787.
TIME ZONE: We are generally reachable Mon/Fri from 08:30 – 18:00). Before calling you may want to check out local time here via http://bit.ly/2D6LXlQ).
*** We invite your questions, comments and suggestions on how we can better combine forces and communicate on what is, after all, the most critical, and thus far the most spectacularly unmet, challenge of our century.
