COVID-19: progressive cities and regions share solidarity projects
The Group of the Party of European Socialists (PES Group) in the European Committee of the Regions aims at taking forward a progressive European vision with solidarity as well as social and territorial cohesion at its core. As Europe finds itself at the centre of the COVID-19 pandemic, locla and regional leaders are on the frontline to fight the battle with the virus and continue to respond to their citizens' needs and wellbeing.
Within their #ProgressiveLocalStories initiative, PES publishes the actions taken by Europe's regional and local politicians to foster the sharing of experiences, ideas and solidarity projects on how to deal with the pandemic. It is very interesting to observe how cities react to the challenging unanticipated situation, and the messages they send to their citizens. Messages of solidarity, inclusion of the most vulnerable groups, and innovative approaches can only confirm that our cities and regions will win this battle and emerge stronger and united more than ever.
