In order to follow up on the previously established results, the group met online on the 22nd of November, 2021.
During the meeting, further presentations of the group's thematics in the context of Poland (see Figure 1) and France (see Figure 2) were presented, respectively by Prof. Jerzy Bański and Prof. Christophe Demazière and Dr. Divya Leducq.

These presentations enhanced detailed discussion and touched upon specific topics, like small towns' rhetorics and perception, which slightly allowed us to restructure the group's work focus.

Moreover, the first preparations for a physical meeting in Tours, France (the beginning of April 2022) started, therefore the tentative agenda was presented and reflected on.
