Starting from the global experience of the Covid19 epidemiological emergency, the project wants to focus on actions of solidarity and cooperation during this critical period at EU level and at the level of every single Member State participating in the project. For this purpose, the project involves n. 7 European Towns, three of which are twinned, in 8 international meetings where direct participants are public local administrators and officials and volunteers, who manage emergency situations, and also High School teachers and students, altogether around n. 330 estimated, and the whole Community as indirect participants around n. 700 depending on the size of the meeting room.
The towns involved work together to:
implement a multimedia tool in five languages (English, French, German, Spanish and Italian) which illustrates the EU’s solidarity aims and, in particular, the actions carried out during and as a result of the Covid19 emergency in the Towns involved;
define a “best practices” document in five languages too for coping with the emergencies at medium-sized Towns level and to be circulated in the EU;
lay the basis between the EU towns involved for periodically developing future initiatives on the theme of solidarity.
The project activities intend specifically not only to lead the Communities involved to a greater acknowledgment and awareness of EU emergency interventions, but also to promote the discussion of the experiences of solidarity, cooperation and support to citizens in each partner Towns with the general aims of:
a greater knowledge of the UE and its actions
the promotion of European citizenship and of volunteering especially among young people;
the creation of networks between partner Towns for solidarity actions.
