Representation of municipal interests for a strong Europe

As I have already mentioned in one of my last contributions, I had the opportunity to spend three months abroad, more precisely in the Belgian capital, as part of the practical phase of my Public Management studies. In the previous reports, I took a closer look at the city of Brussels and all its sights. Now, I would like to introduce you to my internship position, and give you an insight into my activities at the European Office of the German Association of Towns and Municipalities (DStGB).

Learning to be human in the time of Covid-19

Two months have passed since the first case of Coronavirus in Codogno. I still remember the feeling of disbelief when all the newspapers reported on the front page ‘‘First case of Coronavirus in Italy’’.

Now, many days have passed since that fateful day, February 21, 2020, the disbelief and initial uncertainty have been overcome and the time has come to draw conclusions.
