Proposals (add your own)
I know it would totally not be the same and that it sounds lame and boring... However it's better than nothing, isn't it? - Mette
The borders may still be closed for unnecessary travel, but it seems that some countries are loosening up a bit now already and by August it might be allowed to have small outside gatherings (<50) in many countries. We could make multiple small gatherings, at least then you would get to hang out with hitchhikers that are also currently in the same country as you. We could still do it simultaneously and have daily videochats between the gatherings and send lots of pictures. - Mette
Regional gatherings: Some borders may be open, some may be closed. Where borders are open (not only for essential journeys) a gathering with members from several countries is an option. For example, a Scandinavian gathering, a Dutch-German-Polish gathering and a Balkan gathering. --Fverhart (talk) 16:43, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

We could postpone the gathering
In case a gathering could be hold, we should follow the WHO guidelines.
