transform! europe supports the ‚Prague/European Spring‘ webinars which aim at bringing together social, peace, and environmental movements from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as well as to mobilise human and financial resources for greater participation of CEE activists in the World Social Forum (WSF) in Mexico in January 2021.
The Coronavirus has hit the EU unprepared, but with different effect in different countries. Hardest hit were the countries whose healthcare and social systems have been sapped by decades of austerity policies.

This presents a challenge for the parties of the radical left and calls for a re-examination of their strategies.
