2020 Seminar will be Online Only

The UU@UN and 2020 Planning Committee have made the decision to move this year’s Intergenerational Spring Seminar to a virtual event rather than an in-person one, due to the current threat posed by the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Virtual Gathering

Amidst the global disarray caused by the novel coronavirus, we recognize that the biggest threat to life as we know it is our planet’s changing climate that will make disease outbreaks even more common and dangerous. The urgency of this year’s Intergenerational Spring Seminar on climate justice is not diminished and as such the Planning Committee is working on creating an online-only event. The programming in this virtual gathering will be different from what we could do in person, and it presents us with an exciting opportunity to explore how to be in relationship and learn together even when we can’t be in the same room. Importantly, holding an online-only event will also lower our carbon footprint and can allow us to reach people in new ways. The virtual event will take place April 17-19. We don’t have all details yet but we will keep this page updated as they are developed.

Read the full March 10 message sent to registrants that explains the reasons for this change to a virtual event.
