UPDATE Corona: 21st of April 2020

UPDATE:  August 6th 2020

This evening the Dutch government announced that introduction activities need to be restricted in order to control the spread of the new corona virus. In close contact with the municipality of Wageningen we’re preparing a safe introduction for our new students and will continue to do so. In close cooperation with the authorities we’ll discuss the measures and modifications that are needed to organise the AID in the light of the new restrictions. Please keep an eye on our website or the AID App for the up to date program for the AID 2020.

The message the Prime Minister makes clear each and every one of us has to take their responsibility in order to control the spread of the new corona virus. We strongly encourage all those involved once more to comply with the regulations: maintain 1.5m distance, follow the (hygiene) guidelines and when you develop symptoms of the new corona virus go home and take a test.

UPDATE: 19th of May 2020

Plans for the Alternative Introduction Days

In recent weeks, we as the AID board have worked hard to create an alternative programme for the AID. We keep a close eye on the government advices and will adhere to the guidelines at all times. The programme will consist partly of physical activities and partly of online activities. This means that everyone involved in the AID must always keep a distance of one and a half meters from each other.

To spread the number of participants, we decided to organise a four-day AID twice. The first week will take place from Thursday the 13th of August until Sunday the 16th of August. The second week will take place from Tuesday the 18th of August until Friday the 21st of August. Any student who signs up to participate during the AID will be assigned to one of two weeks, based on their studies. We try to clarify who will be assigned in which week as soon as possible, but currently we recommend that all AID participants keep both weeks free.

During the AID we will also do everything we can to distribute all participants over different locations, so that everyone can guarantee the one and a half meter distance. If there are participants who do not yet have a room, but still want to participate physically during the AID, we have the AID campsite where they can spend the night. We also adhere to the guidelines at the campsite and we will take strict hygiene measures.

In the near future we will present the alternative programme via our social media. All parties involved will be informed by us as soon as possible about what the new AID will mean for them. Also the mentors and CREWers will be contacted soon!

UPDATE 21st of April 2020

The Dutch Government announced today that all large scale events up until the 1st of September are cancelled, due to the Corona crisis. After that date the form in which events can be hosted is uncertain. We fully support this decision of the government and understand that a traditional AID cannot take place under the present circumstances. 

Nevertheless, Wageningen University and the AID board feel it is important to introduce all new members of our student community to life, study and the culture at Wageningen University, Aeres Hogeschool and our city. So we will look for alternatives to present an interesting and challenging AID 2020 with respect to the current regulations and guidelines. You may understand that this will take some time, but we hope to come up with great plans and ideas the next few weeks.

When the ideas have taken shape and form we will contact everybody involved and communicate the plans. So please be patient and give us a little time to work things out.

Keep an eye on our website, Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates. Stay safe, and stay healthy!
