Training Course: Health & Well-being through Nature-Based Methods Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Statement of the Project Team
Dear interested parties and applicants of this project,
As an international youth organization, IYNF has an exemplary responsibility to prevent or at least delay the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The delay in the wave of illnesses in particular will play a crucial role in ensuring that all those at risk can receive good medical care and that healthcare will be maintained safely. It is an act of solidarity towards vulnerable people in our society to do everything possible to contain the virus.
The project team from this training course therefore points out that we can currently give no guarantee that the project will be carried out in the specified period (May 25-31. 2020).
As a project funded by the European Commission, the project team has been required to adhere to the safety measures associated with preventing the spread of the disease and to take all necessary steps that require that everyone’s health comes first. The first measure that we are subject to is the national regulations on entry and exit restrictions of some countries represented in this project (especially Italy and the Czech Republic, at the moment). According to the current status (March 12), these countries provide for a national quarantine until mid-April. This means that people are prevented from entering and leaving during this period. Another limitation is compliance with security measures by the European Commission. Apress release from February 26 states:
It is for the participating organizations and individuals to decide on the course of action to take in the light of national travel advice and repatriation schemes. The National Agencies will monitor closely, in cooperation with the participating organization, if the area of the planned mobility can be considered safe by the time of travel for the entire duration of the mobility or project activity.
Given the circumstances of more and more countries closing their borders, the project team is considering postponing the activity towards an unpredicted time (preferably to the second half of 2020; but this decision is subject to the developments of the viral pandemic and the European Union Programmes Agency plan).
Nevertheless, you are able to apply for this training to have a chance to be considered as one of the participants for the time when the training will take place.
We decided to postpone the application deadline until April 10, 11:59 pm CET!
The project team will keep you updated about the development of the measures associated with the spread of the virus and will publish the latest information from the European Commission and the Czech National Agency here and on Facebook – in the HWNM project event and on the IYNF Facebook page..
In the meantime we wish you all and your families safety and lots of strength to go through this process. We believe that humanity can only grow together from this exceptional situation.
