ECTP-CEU RE-START EUROPE Manifesto : Declaration for an inclusive and just post-Covid future for all communities.
ECTP-CEU (European Council of Spatial Planners – Conseil Européen des Urbanistes) felt the need to reflect on the effects of the current crisis on our future living and working environment.
This Declaration seeks to harness the creative power and technical expertise of spatial planners in tackling the social and economic crisis created by the Covid-19 pandemic. It has amplified inequalities and exposed the fragilities in societies across Europe, impacting the short term, but threatening the medium and long-term wellbeing of communities across Europe.
Besides a preamble and an annex with mega-trends, this Declaration sets out the principles that must be applied in the Recovery plans for Europe.
