SFU-Community COVID-19 Response and Recovery Network

The COVID-19 pandemic is directly affecting everyone on the planet in new and profound ways. Collectively, our communities and systems, including governments, businesses, post-secondary institutions, schools, and non-profits, are making big shifts to navigate a rapidly changing context.

To mobilize the capacity and creativity of the SFU community to support communities beyond the academy, we are building a network to help people connect, share resources, and act to enhance our collective impact.

Everyone is welcome to join this network (see below for details)! You can attend the regular Zoom call and/or invite yourself to the SFUCOVNET Slack workspace. 

Sign up for our Monday calls!

Join our regular online call,  Mondays at 1:00 pm. A weekly call to help connect people and build the network from the ground up. We will send an email with call details every week, as well as an updated calendar appointment. If you would like to join, please sign up with your email address, below. You can unsubscribe at any time. We hope to "see" you there.

Please note: meeting details are sent between 9am and 10am every Monday.
