To Join us on GatherTown for PALS Green Day 2021

  • Here is the link to join the PALS Green Day GatherTown: https://gather.town/app/4WTctgq919pibEvp/GreenImpact-PaLS 
  • If you haven’t used GatherTown before all you need to do is click on this link. It will launch GatherTown in your internet browser. The first thing you can do is choose your Avatar and type in your name.  Your name will be visible above your avatar to everyone else who joins the meeting. You will also need to test your camera and microphone are working on this first screen. Some browsers will ask you to confirm that you want to give gather town access to your camera and microphone. Note that you can’t use your camera or microphone on another platform such as Teams while in GatherTown. It also works best if you open gather town on your own computer rather than doing it through a remote connection. Before entering the PALS Green Impact GatherTown room you will be taken to a tutorial space.   You can either follow the tips to learn how to move your avatar etc. or just skip the tutorial and go straight to the PaLS Green Impact room.
