Many of OSPAR's subsidiary bodies have established Working Groups or Intersessional Correspondence Groups (ICGs) to undertake additional work vital to the implementation of their programmes of work, the Joint Assessment and Monitoring Programme (JAMP) and ultimately the North East Atlantic Environment Strategy. Since 2021 OSPAR are migrating their Basecamp groups to the SharePoint platform. For further information please contact Secretariat@ospar.org.
In order to facilitate the work of Working Groups and ICGs OSPAR has established an online collaboration space, utilising Basecamp, to allow ICG members to communicate within the groups, allocate to-do items, set deadlines for key work items and share files.
Getting Started On Basecamp
Basecamp requires a separate login from the OSPAR website that is specific to each user. If you are not already registered on Basecamp and require access for intersessional work please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent an email allowing you to set your personal logon details.
For new Basecamp users the links below contain concise video instructions to the main features of Basecamp to ensure that you can make the most of this intuitive and helpful collaboration tool.
The following Working Groups and ICGs have established Basecamp groups to facilitate their intersessional work. If you are already registered click on the link to access the Basecamp group, otherwise follow the instructions above to get registered.
