The 33rd ICOH Congress, previously planned to be held in Melbourne, has turned to a digital format following the decision of the ICOH Board and the Australian National Organizing Committee. This is an unprecedented resolution that has become inevitable due to the impact of COVID-19 that most countries and territories around the globe are still facing. The decision was made taking into account all the implications in terms of the welfare of our participants, accessibility of travel, venue availability, budget, governance and overall sustainability. The digital event will feature live streaming and on-demand content. To accommodate different time zones, the live streaming will be organized on two stages: a Melbourne stage and a Rome stage
