Our motivation Why we do what we do

We were inspired to embark on this endeavor by the unfortunate loss of several people due to the burdens imposed by Long Covid and ME/CFS. Recognizing our responsibility as one of the less severely affected, we felt compelled to act through initiating a community-driven and crowdfunded conference project aimed at fostering change and paradigm shifts.
