LAUNCH OF COMMUNITIES FOR FUTURE

Launch of Communities for Future: YOUR new European Flagship Action Programme


 The Covid-19 pandemic showcased the role and importance that communities and citizens initiatives play in finding solutions when faced with adversities; but also, how quickly they can mobilise themselves and devise tailored local responses. This is first-hand evidence that bottom-up approaches are an essential complement to top-down approaches. However, the pandemic also put on display the various barriers and taught us what is needed to achieve lasting transformative change.

The event will explore the potential of communities to revive local economies as we emerge from the pandemic, but in a way that also takes account of the deepening climate and ecological emergency and the urgent need for a deeper societal transformation. Communities for Future – a new, integrated Europe-wide programme to inspire, empower and enable local community-led responses to the climate and ecological emergency – recognises that there is no one solution fits all,  so engaging citizens locally, and bridging divides, creating interaction between rural and urban, young and old, North and South and East and West Europe, are an essential part of the mission.

Within the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and the commitments towards the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals, this online event will bring together Members of the European Parliament, as well as representatives of the European Commission, the European Economic and Social Committee, the Committee of the Regions, national, regional and local government representatives, together with representatives of community-led initiatives and other NGOs. 

INSPIRE! Communities for Future values and puts people at the centre of the conversation.
