Covid-19

Regular updates on Understanding Europe's measures & policy

Almost all of our on-site activities were suspended at the onset of the Covid-19-Pandemic in March 2020. A year later, unfortunately, it seems like returning to a normal educational environment is still far away in most European countries: classes are either not taking place at all or only very limited under extensive restrictions.

Although Understanding Europe has been able to offer some face-to-face courses over the past 12 months, depending on temporary national regulations, our team and network have developed digital courses in order to provide an educational offering even in times of the pandemic.

According to current state, in September 2021, this means:

  • Workshops in schools as well as in extracurricular educational institutions and projects are taking place digitally and/or in person, depending on the current regulations in the respective countries.
  • The events of our Fellowship-Programs are taking place digitally until further notice.
  • The Coordinators’ Meeting in autumn 2021 is expetced to take place in person, following a thorough hygiene plan. It is also possible to participate digitally.
  • The European Summer School 2021 is currently expetced to take place in person, following a thorough hygiene plan. It is also possible to participate digitally.

As an educational project, which at its very core consists of personal and close interaction and shared experiences, we want to offer our formats on site again as soon as possible. However, we also feel it is our duty to deal responsibly with the current situation and to protect our Peers and students as best as we can.

We will keep you informed about changes here and on @understanding_europe!
