Position paper : what Europe’s small towns expect of the post-crisis era

In parallel to an open letter at the attention of the Presidents of the EU institutions, the Confederation of Towns and Municipalities of Europe have published their concrete proposals for an “inclusive, ambitious yet realistic recovery that would allow the very idea of our Union to keep having a meaning”.

The 3-page document summarizes the European small towns’ ambitions for “greater solidarity, investment in essential sectors, re-industrializing the real economy, territorial justice and solidarity as our way forward”.

While small towns aspire to assume their role in the recovery post-COVID19, the sanitary crisis has meanwhile “shed a cold, sometimes cruel light on the shortcomings of our political and institutional model“.
