BM: Mia Utz (PP-DE)
Attended the media group. Took the twitter task working group together with Olivia and Tomas.
Asked the CoCC for weekly consultation hour/s. or consultation time according to appointment.
Asked for changes in the Code of Conduct Manifesto, more precisely, asked for more detailed descriptions and connotations of some points, esp. the notion: harassment.
I also proposed a supplementary point, underlining protection and respect for our institutions and organizations. Which is our high and precious aim. It also means, that we respect these achieved results, others have already built up for us.

BM: Oliver Herzig (PP-DE)
Election campaign … finalized now, succes ok but now internal discussions as it is a coalition between several political groups, … quiet trickly as “CUP” might be determinating for a possible new catalan goverment following the currents discussions on int. level

2. Rules of procedure
Proposal from a working group(Mikulas, Mia, Bastian, Alessandro): The working group used the code of conduct maifesto as a guideline
Discussion: Katla would like to note that this is excellent work and thanks the participants for their effort. Mikulas stresses the change on voting for the board, as well as changes regarding treasurer and restrictions regarding allowances.
General disscussion on the rules. No suggestions for change. Points made on what needs to be put into code of conduct procedures and so on.
Is there a suggestion on changes that is seconded by a board member?
Michael Sinclair suggests changing in article 3:
“Guests that disrupt the meeting can be excluded by the chairperson.”
“Guests that disrupt or corrupt the meeting can be excluded by the chairperson.”
Proposal seconded by Alessandro, so it will be put into a vote:
No objections, so it is consensually approved.

Suggestion from Bastian:

We as a the Board are against any comments, actions or propaganda that encourages discrimination related to gender, gender expression, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, sexual characteristics, physical appearance, disability, or age.

No objections, so it is consensually approved.

Yes: Mikuláš, Exile, Katla, Alessandro, Lukáš, Bastian, Jan, Florie,Mia

Unanimously adopted.

Florie leaves the meeting at 20:30

3. Moderation on Mattermost
How can we improve communication on mattermost channels?
There are current problems with bullying, and general nasty behaviour.
Can we tackle this together?

Katla: Iceland undertook massive work in online communication, Gamithra and others in PP-IS have experience with structure improvement.
It is a complicated issue, as PPEU consists of many parties with different rules, and moderating a big platform is a full time job. The problem is more cultural. Admin and moderators are maybe not reasonable for such a big platform. Mikulas: it is useful to delegate projects to people that know information in better details. Create a structure that delegates this burden that online platforms are.

Katla suggests to put together a proposal on how to procede, with consult from the CoCC. She will bring said proposal to the board before taking formal steps on forming a group on the matter. This might result in a working group on creating moderation rules, or an online class in “online etiquettes” or whatever else.The board can agree on the procedure via postal votes on mattermost.
I.E. Katla will report to the board on different ways to go, including important questions to address, in order to improve online culture within the Pirates of Europe.

No objections - Katla has the job. :-D

4. Media team
Media people candidates: is there something to be responsible to answer users coming from our media channels?
Here is the list
Facebook – Lukáš, Lucie, Nikki
Twitter – Olivia, Mia, Tomáš
WordPress – Lucie, Ondřej, Nikki?
GitHub - Let's propose a call with all PPEU members and Lukáš will be the gitlab manager
Language should be English.

We have a consensus here.

(Marco from CoCC left the meeting at 21:10)

5. AOB
5.1. E-mail received from “Only Citizen”
There is an initiative to asking us to address EU: it will be reported to next BM.

5.2. Common Board meeting with PPI
We would like to organise a joint PPEU-PPI meeting.

Katla is proposing an extra meeting for joint meeting and Bastian second it.
It should be done in afternoon to be able to gather partecipation from all timezones.
(i.e. 14:00 CET)
PPI could ask us a formal invitation to their next meeting and we will accept.
