Ask questions live

We want to hear you!
We encourage you to participate in our live programme. Within Planet IMPAKT you can ask your questions to the speakers, live via zoom or email.

Give-away trick: To get the most out of your favourite event, think of a few questions in advance.

There are two ways in which you can participate. For each option there is a button in our Livestream room:

  • Ask questions by email
    By clicking on this button, you send your questions to During the live programmes, our team keeps actively track of all incoming emails.
  • Ask questions live
    This button will open a new Zoom tab in your browser. If no tab opens, please make sure you are allowing pop-ups on this website. You do not need to download Zoom: when the new tab opens, a popup will automatically prompt to download. However, if you look carefully at the bottom of the page, you can see [open in browser]. Click there and you are done 🙂
    Once you are in Zoom, to ask your question, raise your hand. In ‘Zoom-language’ this means: click on [participants] on the right side of the screen and then on [raise your hand]. You can raise your hand at any moment during the event. Only when your question is taken, you are visible and audible in the main live stream.
    Please note that by entering the Zoom, you will not be automatically visible in the main live steam – even if you have your camera on. You can choose to be visible when you ask your question. You can also type your question in the zoom chat, and we will make sure the moderator reads it out for you.
