In this working session followed by a networking dinner, ETH submitted to members a first draft of a val-ue proposition for the community, based on the year’s earlier events. Joined by Rector Sarah Spring-man, the group agreed on the importance of the “why” in clarifying the purpose of the project for both members and the institution. Participants also wanted to tie the value proposition of the ETH Circle to the overarching mission of ETH, in such a way that the community contributes to this directly. Finally, the discussion also explored the capacity of the group to have an impact beyond ETH, and provide a ser-vice to society.
