It’s been almost a year since our global panel webinar “COVID 19: Defying Universal Fear”. The world and our life have changed beyond recognition. We have anticipated some changes and discussed ways to resolve them. There have been events that we could not have foreseen. Armenians and Armenia, in particular, faced the existential threat. We have to mobilize our resources to find the way out.

Futures Studio invites you to participate in “Defying Universal Fear: One Year On” webinar, which will be held on March 31, at 17:00 Yerevan time (GMT + 4). We thought this could be an excellent opportunity to look back to challenging 12 months and what’s essential to act collectively, responsibly and honestly securing the worthy future together.

Discussion language: English. Simultaneous translation to Armenian and Russian via zoom link.

Discussion date and time: March 31, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Yerevan time (GMT+4) 4:00 p.m. Moscow time (GMT+3), 2:00 p.m. London time (GMT), 9:00 a.m. New York time (EST).

Participation is free. You can join the online webinar by Zoom link or by live streaming on our Facebook page – Futures-Studio. Please note that only participants who register via Zoom will have access to simultaneous translation.
