The International Council Meeting is divided into two timezone clusters who will be meeting separately during this online International Council meeting. Here we recorded a rather lovely clip of them waving to each another from their opening sessions. The first is New Zealand, Australia, India and Mainland Europe; and the second is the UK + Ireland, Latin America and North America.
