The first virtual panel at the University of Colorado Boulder’s 72nd annual Conference on World Affairs on Monday, focused on historical pandemics, appeared to be a success, with hundreds of viewers watching remotely.
More than 1,500 combined viewers watched Rebecca Fannin, Jon Haveman, Trine Tsouderos and Richard Wobbekind discuss their concerns for the future, what needs to be done to combat COVID-19 and the aggressive importance of flattening the curve.
The University of Colorado Boulder’s virtual Conference on World Affairs wrapped up Friday afternoon with a final panel that saw experts discuss the health effects of COVID-19 and what can be learned from the pandemic.
After COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 72nd edition of the Conference on World Affairs, organizers announced that the annual event at the University of Colorado Boulder would be pared down for a virtual version.
After the difficult news that the 72nd CU Boulder Conference on World Affairs would be cancelled due to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts, our program committee has worked to produce five CWA sessions addressing these challenging times. CWA will host free, daily virtual CWA sessions April 6-10, 2020.
