COVID-19 UPDATE

(RE)Defining Equality 2020 and COVID-19

Dear everyone,

Due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, together with the board of UWC Austria, we have made the decision to postpone (RE)Defining Equality 2020 to July 2021. This decision was made in accordance to the current political regulations in Austria as well as our responsibility for the health of everyone involved in our Short Course.

We are very sad having to take this course of action but believe it to be the best solution for (RE)Defining Equality, its participants & facilitators as well for all other people involved in the programme.

What does that mean for you as applicants?

Participant applicants:

We are sorry that many of you have already completed your application form. You are of course allowed to apply to our Short Course again in 2021 as long as you fulfil our formal requirements. Over the course of the next year we might make adjustments to the application form. If you are interested in applying as a participant to the 2021 Austrian Short Course, you will be allowed to use your 2020 application as a template to fill in your 2021 application. Further details will follow once the application window opens for (RE)Defining Equality 2021.

Participant applicants born between 29.07.2002 and 31.07.2003: You would normally not be eligible to apply again in 2021 as you would be 18 years or older at the time of the Short Course in 2021. Should you be interested to apply again in 2021, please send us an email by the 14th April 2020 stating that you intended to apply this year. This way we can make an exception for those of you who wanted to apply in 2020 but would formally be ineligible to apply in 2021 due to their age.

Facilitator applicants:

We are sorry that you all have already completed your application form. Over the course of the next year we might make adjustments to the application form. If you are interested in applying for a facilitator position for the 2021 Austrian Short Course, you will be allowed to use your 2020 application as a template to fill in your 2021 application. Further details will follow once the application window opens for (RE)Defining Equality 2021.

Thank your all for your understanding!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

All the best to you and your families & stay safe,

Your (RE)Defining Equality Coordination Team.
