The Ricean – Covid-19 – Special Edition
Welcome to the Ricean – Covid-19 Special Edition
This is a truly remarkable chapter in the story of EREA, taking place amidst the global disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. This disruption to our global community has brought with it loss of life and livelihood, separation of families, restrictions on travel and added strain on people’s wellbeing. These effects have been amplified in countries and communities adversely affected by poverty, disadvantage and inadequate government responses. Whilst it is easy to focus on the ways in which the disruption has impacted negatively on communities around the globe, it is also important to look for positive aspects of this disruption. Communities have come together to support one another, people and organisations have found new ways to connect despite restrictions, and our Common Home has been spared much of the damage caused by transport and travel as people have remained closer to home. Some have named this time as an opportunity to change direction and to work together towards a brighter future.
