Hello Ivy,

Thank you for your interest in Greenstone training. I don't believe we've
actually had much to do with the workshops run up until now -- they have
been organised and funded by UNESCO (we don't have the resources to do
them on our own). Although three people from the NZDL project will be
running the upcoming workshop in Fiji in November, other workshops have
been run by staff from the National Centre for Science Information, Indian
Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.

I would recommend that you get in contact with your national UNESCO office
and express an interest in organising a Greenstone workshop in the
Philippines. If you like, I might be able to put you in contact with the
person who is overseeing the Fiji workshop.

Alternatively, if your department/organization is willing to organise and
fund a Greenstone workshop in your area, we might be able to run it
(depending on what other commitments we have). We would require our air
travel and basic accomodation to be paid for, and if you're feeling
generous, a donation towards our research costs would be appreciated.
