Bring Tesla Gigafactory-2 to Portugal!:
The idea of this event is a simple one, to be open to all interested in discussing the construction of Gigafactory-2 in Portugal. This event is not a general assembly, it's a conference and is limited to the venue's capacity to 150 attendees. We want to:
1. Promote a public discussion on getting GigaFactory-2 to Portugal.
2. Inform the public and ourselves about GigaFactory-2.
3. Create a grassroots movement that shows Tesla that they are welcome in Portugal.
4. Develop strong arguments for GigaFactory-2 to Portugal.
5. Be open to every contribution that wants to get #gigainportugal
