SMP Jacobs

Corona Reporting Project - Jacobs University

There are so many news about Corona, you can get confused, right?

That's what some students at Jacobs University thought too, and that's why they founded a great and international project called "Corona Reporting Project".

A large collective of Jacobs University students have come together to create a weekly report about the latest CoVID-19 news and numbers. This report is translated into 6 different languages for the residents of Bremen. As part of their curriculum, students are partaking in a Community Impact Project (CIP), and these students goal is to spread important news to all residents of Bremen, so the spread of CoVID-19 can be stopped! 

The reports can be found in English, Russian, Turkish, Arabic, French & Romanian.

You can find the videos on YouTube. Further information can be found on the Website of the SMP.
