The Eurocities organization, of which Ljubljana is also a member, is commemorating the coronavirus epidemic victims with a minute of silence on Wednesday, 24 March 2021, at 12:00.
Eurocities President and Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella pointed out that Europe needs a joint moment of reflection. "Let us pause for a minute to mourn the dead, to honour those suffering from the consequences of the pandemic, and to reflect on our own situation – to take a breath in the hectic everyday struggle we all experience."
The Eurocities network brings together European cities. Founded in 1986 by the mayors of six cities Barcelona, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan and Rotterdam, it now includes 198 European cities from 38 countries with 130 million inhabitants.
