Smart Health Responder

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, WeGO has launched the WeGO Smart Health Responder
which provides members, partners, and stakeholders useful information to help combat the virus.


How are you coping with daily life in the new, socially disconnected reality that COVID-19 has brought about? Are you facing any difficulties in studying, working, or staying connected in general?

WeGO is calling for 2-min documentary-style video submissions on the theme of (Re) connection in the New Reality.

*The TOP5 submissons will be awarded cash prizes.*


This section pools policies, campaigns, and best practices from local and national governments that have been successful in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

If your city is interested in sharing your initiatives on this page, kindly fill out this template and send to Chris Jo at
