Announcement related to the measures in response to the COVID-19
Barcelona is one of the many cities around the world that is taking measures in response to the COVID-19.
The IAEC Secretariat wishes to send a message of solidarity and calm to its members and to urge them to continue contributing to the fight against the virus, a wold challenge that knows no borders.
We are convinced that the solutions will have to be integrated and cross-border with the participation of all levels of government. We, the local governments play a crucial role in raising public awareness as well as in protecting health and in maintaining an orderly functioning of public services, especially those addressed to the most vulnerable.
Being a member of the Educating Cities network makes more sense now than ever. Let’s share knowledge:
* Metropolis collaborative online platform that offers access to knowledge and plans implemented by local and regional governments around the globe.
* UCLG cultural mobilization of cities and local governments in the COVID-19 crisis
* UCLG | Metropolis | UN Habitat: Live Learning Experience #BeyondTheOutbreak
As a measure to contain the virus effectively, the IAEC Secretariat team remains available through other alternative communication channels and we will continue to work to implement our action plan.
