Since last year, our way of life has changed in different ways due to COVID19. Some of us are now in a total or semi lockdown, some are working from home, some are attending classes virtually. We all have faced new unexpected challenges in our personal and professional life. We are learning how to deal with uncertainty and be more resilient. This is our new normal. As we are in this together, we have to explore a new thinking to adapt ourselves to this new reality.
As an association, EMA has also been adjusting to this new normal. Since last year, we have held our EMA Annual General Assembly (EMA GA) virtually. This year we are having another virtual EMA GA. This decision has been taken based on the advice of the EU Commission, health organizations, and considering our member’s safety and health, and overall practicalities. This alternative allows us to reach even more of our members and invite them to partake in a wider range of activities.
The EMA GA 2021 focuses on the New Normal, New Thinking, the new spirit that brings EMA members together this year.
Let's take a moment to reflect. Since the beginning of the pandemic, as students or alumni of the Erasmus Mundus program, what has changed? How do we cope with changes? Do we still give back to our community in EMA? Could we exchange ideas as to how to improve our well-being as a person and as a member of EMA?
Although mobility and volunteering can be challenging at this unprecedented time, it is an opportunity to learn or create a new way of thinking. Therefore, we would like to explore the options to stay resilient and grow together as a community under EMA's umbrella.
The Virtual EMA GA 2021 will take place online on: Saturday, May 15th 2021 (15:30 - 18:00 CEST).
