Newsletter Autumn 2020

Dear Members, Partners and readers,

Summer’s finished and the Covid19 is still affecting our lives. We hope you could have some holidays and enjoy, even within this particular situation. As usual, we strongly invite you to respect all necessary rules in order to avoid the spread of this virus: we can continue enjoy our daily life with some precautions.

With the beginning of autumn, it’s time for us to start again our activities like every year. For the current newsletter we prepared for you four articles.

Welcome Samantha!

Since July we have a new member in our big family: Samantha, our new administrative assistant. Let’s read what is she going to tell us! If you want to better know her, you just have to read her presentation.

Two new volunteers have come in Liege!

Since the 1st of September we have two volunteers for the ESC programme who have come to Liège: Irid from Italy and Jocelyn from France. If you want to read more about their adventure in Liege during their first month, please read this article.

P.S: if you would like to join our new friends, there is still another place available. Please visit this page for further information.

How can a person with disability join the ESC programme? Are you a person with disability interested on this programme? Would you like to know what kind of facilities the EU provides to you? Would you like to know if there are hosting organizations prepared for receiving volunteers or interns with disabilities? Please, read this article, so you can find more information about the webinar organized by the European Disability Form on the ESC programme with a specific focus on disability, held on the 24th of September.

Announcements

Saturday, the 26th of September, our member’s meeting for General Assembly took place. Due to the current Covid19 situation, this year the meeting was held on zoom. As usual many partners have joined and it was the occasion to meet our new board candidates, after the presentation of our activities during the last new year. It was even an opportunity to listen and discuss new initiatives from our wonderful partners, but we will tell you more during the next months, so stay tuned and just follow us!

P.S, to our full members: don’t forget to vote! The electronic election is open from the 28th of September to the 3rd of October. You will find more information in your mailbox.
