Dear members of HOPE,

It is with a heavy heart that we must report that the HOPE Congress in Tallinn in May 2020 cannot take place.

The organizing team of Estonia has had several emergency meetings with the government of Estonia and discussed every possible situation regarding the HOPE congress in May.

The government has declared an emergency situation (until 1 May but it can change) due to the pandemic spread of the coronavirus in the world and the likely further spread of the virus within Estonia.

The emergency situation concerns the following:
All public gatherings are prohibited.

On behalf of the organising team of Estonia
and on behalf of the Board of HOPE,

Kind regards,
Jan Haverkate
(President of HOPE)
