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. In Europe the number of those infected reached 2 millionpeoplein less than 6 months, and more than 180,000 have already died. (* Data are as of 31.08.2020).
This 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 can cope with such achallenge 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 todiscuss the problems created by the pandemic in healthcare, economy, education, social care, culture.
We’ll hold 10 debates with experts, public figures and citizens in all participating countries.
In the online brochure STORIES OF GOODNESS we’ll show examples and good practices from all over Europe.
At the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE we’ll summarize what’s heard and seen, with the participation of politicians and MEP/s.We’ll gather everything we’ve learned in a final document - an address to the members of the EC and EP, with recommendations to the European policy in the fight against crises.

For the project activities we’ll invite wide range of participants – with different professions, education, age, ones with positive attitude towards the EU and Eurosceptics.
We’ll achieve a sustainable impact through dissemination via all traditional, digital and social media. In the project activities we will rely on hundreds of experienced and new volunteers.
