Announcement of Covid-19 focused 89th ONLINE

For more than half a year, Covid-19 has been impacting our lives tremendously. In Latvia, 2 applications have been developed in order to help limit the spread of coronavirus. Various opinions have been expressed regarding the use of these applications and how Covid-19 restrictions are impacting society’s psyche. We’d like to have an open discussion about these issues, therefore we have invited the developers of these applications to tell us more about the technical side of these apps, as well as the overall goal. We have also invited a psychotherapist who is going to tell us whether if and how Covid-19 restrictions are impacting us and how to deal with them.

You are welcome to Covid-19 focused 89th on October 29 at 18:00.
