To deal with the consequences of the coronavirus crisis
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
This is the participatory process of the City Pact to address the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis. In this process, citizens are invited to participate in the elaboration of the City Pact.
The plenary session held on May 14, 2020 unanimously approved the promotion of the City Pact with the following objectives:
- Guarantee and adapt municipal finances to the new normality and based on the new priorities that derive from the Covid-19 crisis.
- Re-promote the city at the socioeconomic and civic level, so that Sant Feliu overcomes the situation generated by the crisis.
- Advance with criteria of equity and social justice, so as not to leave anyone behind.
- Build a city model that reinforces health and care.
- Ensure a more sustainable, livable and more cohesive city.
- Take care of the effects that the Covid-19 crisis may generate in public space and its uses.
- Lead collaboration with the private sector, highlighting the set of political and socioeconomic actors in the revival and recovery of the city, through commitment, agreement, co-responsibility and common objectives.
- Maintain momentum and institutional collaboration in the county and metropolitan areas.
How can citizens participate?
The contributions of citizens must be focused on what measures must be applied to face the social and economic effects caused by the coronavirus crisis.
