The Chalmers Cortège becomes the Mini-Cortège
Spring 2020 is by all means unusual and the spread of the Covid-19 corona virus has far-reaching consequences for everyone. For the first time since 1940, during the Second World War, the traditional Chalmers Cortège is cancelled.
But a chalmerist finds a solution to anything – the Chalmers Cortège becomes the Mini-Cortège 2020.
"The background to the Mini-Cortège is to spread joy to Gothenburg and show the traditional sign of Spring. Keeping up with a cortège is very important to us and during the circumstances this year we believe this is a perfect way to keep the Cortège alive, to be able to delight young and old people and spread "Spring joy" to the city of Gothenburg," says Emma Dahlin, student and PR manager for the
Chalmers Cortège Committé.
The Mini-Cortège 2020 consists of 12 selected equipages in mini format (scale 1: 22.5 and 1:32) which will be placed in different places around the center of Gothenburg where everyone can come and look at them.
"Information about the equipages will also be available on our website and on instagram so you can see them from home and get more information about the background of the different news and equipage solutions," says Emma Dahlin.
