Regions in Recovery – register now for free and join over 900 other delegates
I am writing to personally alert you to the Association’s forthcoming Regions in Recovery Global E-Festival. This starts next week and runs from 2nd to 18th June 2021.
This special event is being run between 14 partner organisations and brings together many of the regional studies and science communities for the first time ever at one event. We would like to thank all those who are working with us to bring this event together.
If you are not already signed up, please do so today – it is free and will only take you 1-2 minutes. You can register by clicking here. To watch the sessions, you will need the smart phone app RSA Hub, which you can download from your phone’s app store, or to work from your desktop access the app here.
You can create your own agenda of sessions and this is important as you will not get zoom reminders for the sessions – the reminders will automatically be sent to you by email once you have added a session to your agenda (view our tutorial video for help with this). With three sessions a day and additional yoga, painting classes and other activities in our “Well-Being Tent” there is sure to be something for everyone. The opening plenary “Regions in Recovery” with a stellar line-up of Elisa Roller (Head of Unit, Recovery and Resilience Task Force, European Commission, Belgium), Riccardo Crescenzi (London School of Economics, UK), Isabelle Anguelovski (Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain) and Ayona Datta (UCL, UK), chaired by David Bailey (Birmingham Business School, UK), starts next Wednesday 2nd June at 11:00 BST.
I encourage you all to be collegiate, and to visit the E-Festival each day, to listen to one or two paper presentations and support your colleagues around the world. We all need feedback on our work, and it has been very hard to come by in the last year. This is a chance to help someone along.
I look forward to seeing you at the E-Festival and at least at this one we do not need to worry about the overcrowded trains and carparks, the weather, smelly tents and the queues at the food trucks!
See you in June!
CEO, Regional Studies Association
