Many organisations are currently seeking volunteers to call individuals in isolation, maintain a sense of community throughout confinement, and to help those who are most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Simple actions to help protect your health and those around you:
- #CultureChezNous (fr.), Digital cultural platform offered by the Ministry of Culture and various partners
- La Péniche, the Sciences Po student newspaper (fr.)
- Ubu web: films, dance, music, and more
- Les conférences de France Culture
Even if rackets, balls and oars may be stowed away for some time, there is no reason why we should have to stop moving during confinement. Certain activities can be done without requiring much space or specific equipment.
During this confinement period, we feel it is still extremely important for each and every student to maintain links with the Sciences Po community. Student associations - both cultural and athletic - are not limited to campus walls, and we know that very many of you are continuing to bring your projects to life online.
If you are alone during this confinement period, let us know
If you are spending this confinement period alone, you can notify the Student Life Services services by filling in this form. Please do not hesitate to do so: we are here to help!
Continued Support from the Sciences Po Health Centre
The Sciences Po Health Centres of each campus remain available and equipped to help you if you need.
In times of stress, it is important to pay attention to your own needs and feelings. A few simple practices can be helpful in coping with isolation: stay in touch with loved ones, establish a routine, don’t be afraid to log out...

With the COVID-19 pandemic and measures of confinement in effect in France and many other countries, we are navigating an unprecedented period, one for which we have had little time to prepare ourselves. While circumstances may seem different for every one of us, and although some may appear to have less difficulty adapting than others, it is important to remember that the situation is and remains disorienting for us all.

In order to ensure the pedagogical continuity of your learning, you will have access to a new web-conference service called Zoom. You will be invited by your teachers to join your classes remotely, and you will also be able to create your own meetings for study and group work. You can also use this service to contact your families and thus keep a social link with your loved ones, friends, etc.

Eco-friendly, self-managed, and militant, PAVéS is an association committed to tackling questions on climate change at Sciences Po. But it is also well known by students for CAFéS, its ethical and solidarity-focused cafeteria run by students from the Paris campus. We met to talk with two of its members, Ilytie Piroit and Clémentine Sainclair, over an organic coffee.
