COVID-19: Keeping things moving

As the Covid-19 pandemic unfolds, local authorities are stepping forward into the frontlines. This crisis is being tackled in our hospitals, but also in our streets and plazas, in our buses, trains and subways.

At Polis we want to help cities and regions navigate these difficult times. In this section of our website, we will collect examples of how local authorities are keeping things moving despite the Covid-19 crisis.
