Connect the World Project - Regional Impact of COVID-19


Due to the changed environment in the world at the moment and the inability of students to connect through exchanges, we would like to invite you to participate in casual discussions with other students from around the world (including Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Mongolia, Romania, Vietnam, and Wuhan).
Our first topic of discussion will be: To analyze the impact of COVID on the society of the various home countries.
