Corona Care Package #1 | Presenting the Corona Care Package


Monday’s post: Is our fear more dangerous than the virus itself? (Dutch)

Monday 30 March  |  SG Presents the Corona Care Package

The outbreak of the Corona virus has affected us all. Our thoughts, first and foremost, go out to those who have lost their loved ones and those who are trying to recover from the virus.

Following the most recent restrictions Studium Generale decided to cancel all events until the 1st of June. Our office is closed, but we continue to work from home. Even though our events are cancelled/postponed, we remain committed to our mission: broadening your academic horizon and stimulating critical reflection. We intend to make #stayingin as pleasant as possible by offering content that’s informative, inspiring and thought provoking. So how are we going to do just that?

In the following weeks we will share video’s, blogs, articles and podcasts within four focus areas: Fake News, Mental Health, Arts & Culture and Philosophy.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

On Mondays and Fridays we aim to address Mental Health & Wellbeing in general, and stress and burn out amongst our students in particular. The issues are often study or work related, but the current crisis can also cause anxiety, depression or feelings of loneliness. We do not claim we can solve these problems, but try to do our part, for example by offering free Yoga & Meditation sessions, every Monday and Friday at 12.30 on Instagram (@skycampusnetherlands).

Is our fear is more dangerous than the virus itself? Belgian clinical psychologist Mattias Desmet places the Corona crisis squarely amongst the longstanding mental health issues of our society. Burnout, depression, loneliness, drug use, and our faltering worldview. Check out today’s post, for Dutch readers only alas!

Stay tuned over the coming days and weeks for our daily themed updates. Stay healthy, stay safe and, above all, stay inspired with the SG Corona Care Package! #stayingin
