Online event on shared experience of the pandemic and economic recovery in each country offered by our Aurora partner, University of East Anglia, UK

You are warmly invited to join a live discussion on topics of common interest to students across borders, in a Blackboard Collaborate online session, scheduled for March 14th 2022, between 2-3pm CET.

While we propose to focus on the shared experience of the pandemic and economic recovery in each country, we would like to collect in advance of the session your own questions and suggestions of themes of joint interest, that affect our economies and societies across borders.

You are invited to post now your suggestions or questions of interest to you for a cross-border conversation at THIS LINK - where you can also include your contacts for a direct invitation to the live session on March 14th. We would circulate a week before the event any questions of common interests that students suggested for the live discussions, by individual e-mail.

Some themes of interest suggested for similar cross-border debate in the past included:

- the significance of international students exchanges between the UK and Europe or Asia

- the experience and perception of Brexit from different countries’ perspectives

- migration trends to/from your country before and during the pandemic.

On the day of our live session, you would then be able to meet with students at the UEA and some of our international partners and discuss your own perspective on the emerging themes of common interest, as well as reflecting with us on economic recovery. 

Note: the online collaborative session will make use of break-out groups to encourage small group interaction and support conversation between native and non-native English speakers. The use of a microphone/camera would be encouraged from all participants but is not essential.
