About This Project
Manage the COVID crisis with care, reason, values, unity, solidarity
Duration: 18 months (May 2021 – October 2022)
Summary of the project:
Project “Manage the COVID crisis with Care, reasOn, Values, unIty, soliDarity” is a response to the global crisis which tried to stop the “rotation of the Earth”.
The coronavirus pandemic affected the whole world and rearranged EU’s priority areas for action and made the battle with Covid-19 top priority. Although difficult, initially with manifestations of selfishness and isolation, the countries of the Union quickly realized that no one could cope with such a challenge alone.
At the heart of our project is the idea that the application of European values, care, unity and solidarity is the most effective way to deal with the effects of the overall economic and health crisis caused by Covid-19. The pan-European nature of our project is involving 8 countries from all corners of Europe: Bulgaria, Greece, Spain, Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Lithuania and Serbia.
The aim of the project is to discuss the problems created by the pandemic in healthcare, economy, education, social care, culture.
The project outcomes:
- Debatеs “Lessons from the crisis”: 10 debates will be hold with experts, public figures and citizens in all participating countries.
- Brochure “Stories of Goodness”: In an online brochure will be shown examples and good practices from all over Europe.
- International Conference: At the International Conference the Project Partners will summarize what’s heard and seen, with the participation of politicians. Everything what have been learned will be gathered in a final document – including recommendations to the European policy in the fight against crises.
For the project activities a wide range of participants will be invited – with different professions, education, age, ones with positive attitude towards the EU and Eurosceptics. A sustainable impact through dissemination via all traditional, digital and social media will be achieved.
