OeAD scholarship holders holding a sign with #WeAreOne in their mother tongue
Lisa Esti Puji Hartanti from Indonesia, who is currently staying in Vienna and doing PhD research supported by an ASEA-Uninet Ernst Mach Scholarhship, started an online campaign of solidarity.

Lisa encouraged other scholarship holders to join her. She tells us about her idea:

“The world is now still facing a pandemic crisis situation. Each country has its own process, some have entered a more normal period again and some are still facing an increasing number of infected people. So, we as young people and OeAD scholarship holders, who come from various countries around the world, decided to share our positive energy with others so the world will become one with more solidarity after this crisis. We want to show that we stand together and that we are not alone facing this crisis situation. That’s why we carry the words #WeAreOne in our own language. And we thank OeAD for always supporting and appreciating our initiative. Greetings of solidarity!”
