Speaking at the UfM Women4Mediteranean Conference 2020, MMM President Anne-Claire de Liedekerke also called for radical change in the way we perceive and value Care, education, and those who are responsible for it.
Building back better is the responsibility of all governments but it is also our collective and individual responsibility to care. Another positive effect of the pandemic is that in many families, parents and children have actually enjoyed spending more time together.
Creativity and imagination will be needed to build back better and pursue the common good.
Caring for each other will make a difference and particularly caring for children because their future is in our hands and our future is in their hands.
The Women4Mediteranean Conference 2020 was organized by the Union for Mediterranean (UfM) on 16-20 November 2020. Recordings of all the conference sessions are available the UfM website. See also the full report of the conference.
