The SOLICO project is established around the tackling and management of the most severe crisis of European societies since WWII - the COVID-19 pandemy. European, national, regional and local solidarity became one of the most important factors during that time and the importance of volunteering and active participation in local societies are a crucial factor for maintaining services and supporting most vulnerable groups. In all European countries public administrations, civil society organisations as well as volunteers and citizens have gathered broad experiences (positive and negative) around the management of the pandemic development, about crisis management, management of volunteer support and solidarity on local level. With the SOLICO project these experiences and expertise on local level should be gathered, discussed and treasured as good practices for future crisis management and solidarity actions. During a series of workshops in all partner countries representatives of local and regional authorities civil society organisations and citizens will share their experiences and practices for all three phases of pandemy management, good practice collections will be deducted and discussed on European level during a final conference which will ensure a sustainable impact of the results beyond the partner organisations. A comprehensive dissemination, exploitation and multiplication strategy will be applied to allow participation and broad impact so that besides all negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemy on all European societies, there can at least be learning effects and good practices for future similar situations. The partnership of the project consists of 11 well known and powerful local public administrations, regional authorities, civil society organisations as well as federations and networks of local municipalities who are all willing to share their experiences, learn from each other and support mutual solidarity as crucial concept for crisis management.
