Letter to Presidents of the EU Institutions on the recovery plan after COVID-19 health crisis

Financing the transition

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across Europe, citizens worry about their health and that of their loved ones, and also about the impacts on their jobs and livelihoods. During this time of crisis, which is putting many people’s livelihoods at risk, it is essential that our leaders issue a strong response, helping to alleviate the uncertainty, especially for the most vulnerable. This response must address the immediate health, social and economic urgency, in a way that improves the resilience of our economy towards crisis and well-being of people and nature.

In an open letter sent to the presidents of EU institutions, CAN Europe and other environmental groups called for the recovery plan to be future-proof and drawn up in a transparent way.
