It is our greatest regret that we have to inform you that we have to cancel all Regional Sessions of EYP Switzerland 2020 as of right now. This includes the Regional Session Bern, Geneva and La Chaux-de-Fonds.
With the further expansion of the COVID-19, the Swiss Confederation introduced new protective measures including the closure of all schools until the beginning of April.
Schools are a fundamental part of our Sessions – participants- and infrastructure alike. We also see it as our responsibility to minimise the passing on of the virus. Therefore the cancellation of those events is the only appropriate measure.
We would like to express our gratitude to the people that were interested to discover our organisation by attending a Regional Session and we hope that they will do so at a later stage. Also a big thank you goes to everyone that helped to make the events possible, namely sponsors, officials and teachers.
Most importantly we would like to express our appreciation and sympathy to the Organising Teams of the cancelled events. Countless hours were spent by those engaged individuals to make the Sessions happen. We hope that this effort will have been worth it in the end in one way or another.
We will keep you updated about the further process and maybe also possible alternatives.
The Board of EYP Switzerland
