Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, local and regional authorities have been on the frontline to fight a virus that knows no borders, support people in difficulty, provide answers and create new solutions. Today, more than ever, cities and regions are needed to build back better our communities and create a more sustainable future that leaves no one behind.

On Sunday 29th November at 6 p.m. we are hosting an online debate with the participation of many local administrators of the Italian Partito Democratico. We will start from the concrete problems that, because of the COVID, our territories are facing and we will present progressive proposals able to overcome this crisis together.
