How citizens & NGOs organised solidarity amid Covid-19

22 May 2020 | Civic Participation

The unprecendented crisis that hit the whole world in the last months revealed how much solidarity means to us. The upheaval of our way of life, in our consumption patterns also urged many of us to re-think them. 

Throughout these months, the ECF and many other organisations contributed to mapping as many existing solidarity initiatives as possible, whether they came from organised groups (NGOs) or from citizens, business owners… 

Among the many testimonies we received, we wanted to highlight stories which brought a deep change of attitudes in communities. The selected stories here also reflect broader lessons to draw from the crisis, a food for thought in addition to the 10 lessons drafted by ECF and its network

The ECF would like to thank all the contributors, who appear in the video (by order of appearance):
