COVID-19 : Corona Crisis: Mayors Act Now Website :

The Global Parliament of Mayors (GPM) has launched an online campaign "Corona Crisis: Mayors Act Now" – an initiative designed to connect mayors, cities and local governments – providing an overview of mayoral action and city leadership. Its objective is to keep mayors and cities connected during the pandemic by sharing local initiatives, policy tools, communiques and publications with regard to city leadership, as well as providing an exchange platform for questions and comments. 

The GPM organised two webinars, the first one on "Strengthening the Safer Cities Strategy while responding to COVID-19", and the other one on "Rethinking the city post-COVID".

It published an article on local initiatives to help migrants, and also an article on re-imagining cities in the era of COVID-19

The Chairman of the GPM issued two statements in response to the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, addressing the essential role of mayors and the importance of cooperation and solidarity.
