10 Pratical Sessions
Despite being in the midst of yet another challenging year with COVID19, Lupus Europe was able to host its 32nd Annual Convention from September 24th to September 26th. The event was held online; our second online Convention.
We chose to see this as an opportunity to both open our Convention to a wider audience and to directly involve our delegates in the selection of topics they would like to see discussed in the Convention and thus the “10 Practical Sessions to Improve your Life with Lupus” was born.
Convention participants this year came from: Germany, Slovenia, Cyprus, the Netherlands, Belgium, Iceland, Lithuania, Denmark, Greece, Poland, Bulgaria, Italy, France, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, Slovakia, Switzerland, Ireland, Israel, Russia, Sweden, Romania, France, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Czech Republic and the UK.
We had 253 registrations this year. A number of participants were directed to the Lupus Europe Facebook page to follow the sessions as they livestreamed. Our Facebook participants were able to raise questions during the sessions and fully participate in the sessions. The Zoom part of the Convention was restricted to Lupus Europe National Member Delegates, Partners and Official Volunteers. Zoom participants were also able to take part in the workshops that took place after each talk; these were not livestreamed.
Most sessions were transmitted live or uploaded on Lupus Europe´s Facebook Page. The number of views for each of those sessions are at present:
