  1. Dear Mr Jirka,
    My name is Agnieszka Czachowska and I organise a study visit in Iceland about participatory methods for Polish representatives of local government and architects. Will you be in Reykjavik at the end of September because your work and knowledge about GIS and participatory methods is very interesting for us. We would like to meet with you if possible.
    Warm regards,
