The pandemic has been uppermost in our minds for some months now, and the virus will not be going away any time soon. As is so often the case, vulnerable groups are more likely to be neglected and left behind in the institutional reactions and management of a crisis. The work of associations working with and for such groups was, therefore, and will continue to be, of vital importance.
EBU therefore considered that it would be worthwhile seeing how different associations are dealing with the crisis, what was learned as we all found paths through an unprecedented situation, and what we think the next steps may be.
