Australia-New Zealand Congress and Summer school – Auckland, New Zealand (10 – 19 January 2020)
The 2020 Congress and Summer school was held at St Francis Retreat Centre, 50 Hillsborough Road, Mt Roskill, Auckland, New Zealand.
Our special guests were Duncan Charters, the new president of UEA, and Stefan MacGill, a famous author and ex-vice-president of UEA (2013–2019). Among the program items were a games evening, a whole-day excursion to beautiful natural locations close to the city, a guided tour of Auckland Art Gallery, and a seminar for “Activist Development” (Aktivula Maturigo: AMO), which was about training Esperantists to increase their capabilities as activists for the language.
