In the face of the COVID-19 crisis, we must act collectively throughout Europe, in a spirit of solidarity that must be expressed at all levels: European, national, local and regional. We must also join our efforts to support local and regional authorities which, because of their special responsibilities and their proximity to citizens, are in the front line in responding to this major crisis.

As a political assembly made up of local and regional elected representatives from 46 Council of Europe member states, the Congress has developped a web platform to pool the experience of the various players on the ground and the concrete responses implemented by numerous networks and associations of municipalities, towns and regions.
