As EU heads of state and government today discuss a collective response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Friends of the Earth Europe has called on them to act urgently and decisively and put addressing inequalities and the planetary emergency at the heart of a recovery plan.

Jagoda Munic, director of Friends of the Earth Europe, said:

People across Europe face common problems – from inequality to discrimination, and unhealthy environments. These issues will not be solved by retreating into nationalism and division.

 

We can create more caring, democratic, equal, inclusive societies when we work together for the good of people and communities all over Europe.
