Our recommendations: a reading and watching list

March 23, 2020

How many times have we come across an article, a video or a webinar and thought: I’d love to watch this now, but I’ll save it for later? We understand that many of us have found ourselves with a little more time in our hands and might use it to catch up with some reading and watching. 

 

We put together a list of recommendations for you - here you’ll find some plenaries, articles, blog posts, and more. The idea is that this list grows with your recommendations: please leave a comment suggesting an addition to this list (but be careful not to infringe copyrights)
