A project with partners from 12 different countries working across the whole of Europe, COVID-19 has naturally had an impact on BOND. In light of WHO (World Health Organisation) guidelines and EU recommendations our April 2020 Board meeting, parts of the Moldovan Lab Experiment and Youth Forum took place online. We are reflecting on creative ‘collective at a distance’ ways to make sure our aims of bonding, bridging and linking continue. Please keep checking in with our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram community.

At this strange, challenging time we wish you and your family good health, and if you find yourself in isolation, we have a collection of more than 50 inspiring stories to read in The Barn. As usual we very much welcome your feedback and innovative ideas about how best to work and grow together.
