Frequently Asked Questions

Be a COVID-19 Action Hero
What are Featured Actions?

The ‘‘Featured Actions’’ is an initiative launched by the COVID-19 Action Hub to publicize inspiring and incredible stories and impactful actions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the beginning of the outbreak and its spread at a global scale, small or big actions, from individuals and organisations all over the world have shown us how the power of kindness helped many people to go through these troubled times.

Bearing this in mind, the COVID-19 Action Hub is currently promoting a campaign to learn more about how the UPG community cope with the pandemic and to inspire and drive actions through positive examples.


What type of actions can be submitted?

Type of action – The action can focus on a punctual action (one-time activity) or on a project with a longer duration. However, you cannot submit an action at the planning phase. It must be an action/project that has already started.

Area / field of Action –  The action can be partly or exclusively related to health. For example, helping people facing difficulties because of the pandemic (gathering donations, serving food or distributing hygiene items for people in vulnerable situations), promoting awareness campaigns about the pandemic, promoting educational campaigns to empower local communities to fight the effects of the pandemic, will be accepted as suitable actions. All categories of population can be targeted. Here some examples of featured actions published on our website:
