We are all in this together.
Europe has become the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic and we now find ourselves in various kinds of difficult situations that we would not have imagined possible only a few weeks ago. This emergency calls on every individual to do his/her part to help families, friends, colleagues, neighbours, and communities to get through these complicated times.
Local and regional politicians are today on the frontline to fight a virus that knows no borders. It is difficult, dramatic and seems impossible, but our communities are reacting well in a united way so we will be able to win. Some mayors have launched projects of solidarity to help their elderly citizens get their groceries. Others are communicating directly with the population via social media to keep everyone informed and reassured. On the other hand, some are nevertheless struggling to understand what they can do.
So why not help each other by sharing ideas?
If you are a local or regional politician and you would like to share your experience, ideas and/or solidarity projects on how to deal with this pandemic, please send us your answers via the form below.
The PES Group will collect the ideas and disseminate them on its website and social media:
This is the minimum we can do to try and help everyone right now and bring your voice to the European institutions so as to draw the attention on the importance of finding a common European response.
To all of you, a big thank you!
Take care and stay safe!
