How things have changed over the last three months! Citizens, local and regional governments – and their associations – all over Europe and beyond, everyone had to learn how to live differently.

Like other networks, PLATFORMA decided to organise webinars, which turned to be a real success with more than 60 participants each time and several MEPs and representatives of the European institutions among the speakers.
