IDO has been working very close with Organizers to find the best possible solution for everyone involved. Please, rest assured that during this period, IDO will carry out its daily operations to the best of its capacity and the Office can still be reached as usual via email or phone.


While it’s important for everyone to observe recommendations of social distancing to stay at home and help flatten the pandemic’s curve, the IDO still represents a key role to play in enhancing well-being and encouraging people to remain healthy during the outbreak. Joining the worldwide initiative from WHO to promote ways to be physically active while at home and share good practices, we would like to ask you all to take part in the online IDO Dance Challenge. More information will follow shortly. We take it as our duty to play a positive role in people’s lives during these challenging times.


The IDO Presidium will keep you updated always of any issues relating to this global health matter via the website, social media platforms and emailing all is NMO’s.
