All across the world communities are taking action for a better world. Thousands of community initiatives across Europe are making life healthier, fairer and more sustainable.
Research shows that such initiatives are highly effective in reducing ecological footprints, building social capital and enhancing local economies. And we know that strong local communities have stood resilient in the face of the pandemic.
#EDSC21 shines a light on these initiatives. It builds support for community-led action from policymakers and inspires the wider public. It also provides a moment for communities to take stock, and to celebrate their transformative work.
