Considering the current health situation, the organization of a village as in the previous editions “does not seem realistic”. An alternative option is therefore being studied.
Thus, social distancing would be in place, a limited reception capacity and probably a small stage for performance. Other measures could be taken such as entering the open-air village in shifts, keeping 1,5 m distance while being seated.
The decision regarding the organisation of the EuroVillage will be taken mid-April. It will be specified at this time if a live audience can be allowed or if the organization must be done online and what activities will be offered in the city.
