TeritoriALL no2 - November 2020

The European Union, already before the pandemic, adopted a plan to revive the European economy while achieving its ambitious environmental goals. Given the extreme pressure that the pandemic puts on the economies and the health system, is it still possible for Europe to fight on two fronts?

Distinguished guests in TerritoriALL give their answers, stressing the need for more cohesion and coordinated action.

State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Interior, Markus Kerber states in his message that “the corona pandemic has once again shown that a collective Europe must be strong and crisis-proof”. And the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli asks to “radically change our economic models, while ensuring a fair transition that is suitable for us and future generations”.

We are also hosting articles from:

Roland Theis, State Secretary for Europe of Saarland

Kathrin Schneider, Minister and chief of the state chancellery of Brandenburg

Manolis Kefalogiannis, MEP, rapporteur of the European Parliament on the Just Transition Fund

Pavel Branda, vice mayor of Radlo, rapporteur of the CoR on cross-border public services

Our thematic dossier is focusing on the geography of the pandemic and first policy answers from regions and cities. It offers fresh insights based on the findings of a new ESPON study.

We are also presenting a new ESPON Policy Brief on “Structural change in coal phase-out regions” that explores the different angles of the ‘just’ epithet and explores the challenges for the European regions. And a second Policy Brief on “Maritime Spatial Planning and Land Sea Interactions”.

And we present the pilot actions of the new Territorial Agenda 2030 and a preview of the Atlas that the German Presidency of the EU Council will publish at the beginning of December.

Read more in our 88 pages with even more contributions from our stakeholders, Monitoring Committee members, and our ESPON team. You can also download the magazine at the bottom of this page.
