Update from the board

What crazy time these are. Everyone is staying home all the time, working in pyjama’s and suddenly has to replace a very old and embarrassing Skype profile picture. Within ASVA things are not the same either. Our lustrum activities have been postponed, our office is closed and we don’t expect that there will be any education physically for the remainder of this academic year in Amsterdam.

Anyone who is now getting in financial problems, trouble with housing or with (digital) education: we would like to direct you to our website www.asva.nl/corona. Besides you can of course reach us by e-mail, WhatsApp or (video)call. We will do our very best to keep you up-to-date with all important developments that matter to you and we will keep lobbying for you.

Because this crisis should not be paid for by students.

We know it is difficult to have to change our lives so suddenly and to distance ourselve from others, but for lots of reasons it is very important that we do so. It might seem now like there is no light at the end of this tunnel, but we will get through this together. Really.

Spirited and healthy greetings from the ASVA board.
