CERN Clubs whose activities take place off the CERN site (not including the CERN barracks which are considered as part of the CERN Meyrin site) may resume their activities so long as they commit to and are in compliance with the Host State regulations regarding COVID19. On-site CERN Club activities (on Meyrin and Prevessin sites, including Barracks) are suspended until further notice.
However some CERN clubs have moved their activities online and are inviting you all to join them (see details in the schedule below).
Several CERN colleagues have enthusiastically put together activities to keep us well in body and mind in this challenging time. The schedule is available here and the list of activities is updated weekly.

The CERN Welcome Club Committee is glad to inform you the brand-new SHARE & SUPPORT SPACE!
What is it?
The Share & Support Space is aimed at creating a stronger sense of community and solidarity in times of the global pandemic, by creating a space for self-discovery and building connection where participants can safely explore different topics in a confidential and contained environment. It supports participants to grow in self-awareness, empathy, as well as combat loneliness and isolation.
Share & Support Space is a confidential place where you can bring your authentic self and experience deep listening and foster non-judgement towards yourself and others. During a Share & Support Space you'll be invited to practice emotional honesty, connect to your intuition and foster deeper insight. It's a time for you to practice self-care and foster wellbeing. Feel free to bring a cup of tea/coffee, light a candle, eat a cookie, whatever makes you feel comfortable and will help you relax and be present.
What to expect?
Each Share & Support Space follows the same structure. We'll start with a brief grounding meditation and introduce the theme of the day. Take a few moments to create the group agreement together and then I'll suggest three questions to reflect upon. This can be in writing form, by take time to think or engaging in artistic expression. After the 10 minutes are over, you'll then be invited to share your thoughts and reflections with the group. Each participant will speak one by one while the rest of the group listens. If time permits, there will be a second round of sharing in which participants will focus on anything that has been said that resonates with their experience or any new points of view that they find useful. To close each Share & Support Space participants will be invited to share one word that encapsulates what they are taking away from the session.
While the Share & Support Space is not group therapy, it is a place for profound connection to yourself and others which can have great benefits for your mental health and wellbeing. Confidentiality is required from all participants in order to develop trust and deep sharing. Everyone is welcome and no prior experience is required.
Each Share & Support Space will have a different theme:
27th November, 2020 - Embracing Change & Uncertainty
11th December, 2020 - Fostering Resilience & Confidence
29th January, 2021 - Coping with Loneliness & Isolation
26th February, 2021 - Establishing Self-care Routines & Balance
26th March, 2021 - Managing Stress & Negative Thoughts
30th April, 2021 - Celebrating Success & Positivity
28th May, 2021 - Dealing with Anger & Fear
25th June, 2021 - Fun & Play
*Times will be confirmed closer to the date based on participants availability*
