WeGO Smart Health Responder Webinar Series

WeGO

WeGO is hosting a series of webinars presenting regional cases of best practices by local governments, corporations, and institutions around the world, addressing key questions to support international cooperation and promote successful policies in response to COVID-19.

UPCOMING


WEBINAR PART 3/3

This webinar aims to move beyond a discussion solely focused on national challenges and solutions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic by providing members and participants a direct look into the life of citizens around the world. As people are coping with a new reality, WeGO seeks to provide a platform for them to share the challenges and changes they are facing. This will be done through pre-recorded footage of the daily life of ordinary citizens and a discussion about their experiences with government officials from their respective cities. 

VIDEO CONTEST

WeGO is henceforth releasing a call for two-minute mini-documentary-style videos on the theme of (Re) connection in the New Reality.

The makers of the best four to five films will be invited as panelists on the webinar to have an open discussion with their city officials, learn from each other, and exchange thoughts on how citizens can contribute to improving policies and the sustainability of cities.

More information on the panelists will be shared once the top submissions have been selected.

WEBINAR PART 2/3

Exploring Effects and Results of COVID-19 in the Americas

This webinar explored issues and challenges raised by the COVID-19 outbreak, with a specific focus on the readiness and responses of local governments, corporations, and institutions in the Americas.

With efforts to develop a vaccine predicted to go on until at least the second half of 2021, this session highlighted the steps cities are taking in the meantime to allow their citizens to get back to normal life. It sought to share COVID-19-related challenges, policies, and solutions in enabling economies and schools to restart, such as testing, tracing, and digital delivery of services.

Cities shared their experience of dealing with quarantine regulations, opinions on working and studying from home, best practice that can be replicated in the region, and policy changes that instituted in the face of the pandemic. Smart tech solution providers shared insight on how to prepare for a second wave, along with predictions for the post-COVID-19 era.
