About this process
This process belongs to Town Hall 2022
This Town Hall addresses the main elements of a caring society, firstly going over the relationship between care and local public service provision. It tackles the issues of human mobility, universal care and protection, and the future of work as changes in production and consumption are brought about.
The relevance of care work shifted during the pandemic, including by considering the disproportionate impact on women and girls. Embracing equality in all parts of life is essential to transform our societies and develop a new way of doing politics, emphasizing the transformative contribution to decision-making of women and feminist local leaders.
To develop caring communities means understanding changing new priorities and the need to renew our social contract. Protecting our communities and enhancing their well-being is a must in the COVID-19 aftermath and this calls for transforming our systems and who is involved in decision-making.
