Abstract: The present status of JOSO Working Group 7 (WG7) activities is summarized, including the support for coordination between scientific teams, as well as the educational project. Although the practical organisation of professional expeditions took off only slowly in the course of 1998, often by direct contacts between institutes, the WG7 leader could serve as a central relay point, helping scientists in their search of local contact addresses. We also report about the progresses accomplished in the edition of an information booklet and the support we could get for this task. The prospects for a multi-station coordinated campaign, involving primarily basic observations by amateur astronomers, will be discussed, starting from the pioneering effort of the Groupement Français pour l'Observation et l'Etude du Soleil (GFOES).
