AC21 General Secretariat held a ZOOM meeting on Wednesday, April 8th, 2020, 20:30-22:00 JPN time. Discussions were

made around the COVID-19, which may affect the currently planned IF 2020 scheduled in December in Thailand. The members also shared their thoughts on how AC21 can contribute to society under these extraordinary circumstances. The AC21 General Secretariat would like to take this moment to thank you for your participation.

The STC meeting minutes will be shared with all AC21 member universities shortly.

*This meeting will be held only for STC members, in order to streamline relevant activities, costs and facilitate effective discussion at the Meeting.


(2) AC21 General Secretariat office

Like many universities around the world which have shut down temporarily to take safety measures in these challenging times, the AC21 General Secretariat (Nagoya University) is closed and will work remotely from our homes between April 13th-May 6th (dates may be extended). However, we will be available remotely for “business as usual” where this is possible.


Thank you for your continued support to AC21 and its activities.
