CITTASLOW SOLIDARITY AT THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS

Orvieto

AUSTRIA

Enns
In the cittaslow Enns the local community and mayor Stefan Karlinger instructed the tourism and citymarketing Enns GmbH and Max Homolka to establish a initiative of volunteers to help the risk group of Corona (COV-19). The risk Group of Corona (COV-19) should stay at home, so the group „ENNS bringt´s“ will take care of grocery shopping, get medication from the pharmacy, go for a walk with the dog, rent books and just phone against the lonliness. The cittaslow ENNS will stay together and will help each other.

 

CHINA

Jurbise
Concrete experiences of solidarity which took place or are still in progress in Jurbise.

- Creation of a Facebook group "Jurbise - Solidaire" on which citizens are invited to share their solidarity initiatives and offer their services to their neighbours (shopping for an elderly person, write letters to isolated persons, make protective masks for frontline workers, provide tutoring to students, exchange raw materials, encourage and share positive thoughts, call people who feel lonely, share cooking recipes, fun activities for children or health-related pieces of advice, organise collective sports classes online, list shops that are still open...).

- Organisation of a daycare centre in all of the municipal schools and kindergartens for parents working in health and safety sectors (also during the spring holidays). Students in these establishments also receive a weekly letter containing various exercises and activities to keep them learning during confinement.

- Via social networks and via a municipal all-box letter, information about security instructions, emergency numbers and local stores ensuring home deliveries or drive-in systems.

- Food donations from many local restaurateurs to regional hospitals: a butcher delivered several hundred sandwiches, an Indian restaurant offered prepared meals, a caterer sold full meals for € 5/person every day...

- Acknowledgements to the medical profession are given every day at 8 pm by citizens who applaud on their doorstep. For this purpose we also have the bells of the city ring. 

- Organisation of free online sports classes by several professional coaches. Many psychologists from Jurbise also offered free phone calls for people with anxiety issues.

- Donation of alcohol by a local distillery to nearby chemist’s so they can make and sell hydroalcoholic gel.

- Display of positive and colorful messages of acknowledgements and encouragement on the windows of houses, often made by children. Some of these messages have even sometimes been placed on garbage bags for dustmen who continue their mission despite the risks.

- Publication via the municipal website of free activities to do at home from your computer: e-book reading, virtual visits to museums, seasonal cooking recipes, online sports lessons...

- Launch of the first "Jurbise Virtual Festival" offering citizens the opportunity to showcase their talents and share it with their fellows via social media.

- Organisation through the municipal "Taxi Seniors" of a shopping and free home delivery system for the elderly citizens of Jurbise.

- Distribution of protective masks to health professionals by municipal services.

- Distribution of a "comfort pack" to vulnerable citizens and health professionals domiciled in the city, in collaboration with SHAPE.

- between citizen and citizen
As always the Mayoral office supports the citizens working together, but at this time in a safe manner.

There is now a local radio station established by the local cinema club, to keep the citizens in touch with each other and is being broadcast via Spotify and Youtube.

We had a letter drop to every house in our community, stating the safety protocols and new laws concerning leaving the house. At this time all unnecessary travel is banned, so if you have to leave your house, you have to have a printed justification to show the police.

- between the Municipal Administration and the most needy in your community
We have established a register for vulnerable people, using our electoral register, local knowledge and asked our citizens to tell us of anyone that they believe could need our assistance.

This register enables us to keep communication open with the elderly and the vulnerable in our community, whether they are lonely and want to talk (for positive mental health needs), are in need of food (so we can facilitate shopping for them), or in need of medical assistance (where we can approach the relevant medical personnel for them).

The Mayor’s Office (working alongside the neighbouring town of Lombez) has provided facilities and equipment for our local medical staff.

The multi-purpose sports hall located in Lombez has been adapted to receive covid-19 patients. For this project, we have bought a washing machine, tumble-dryer, computer and printer. We have also made available one of the Mayoral Office’s cars for the nurses.

Showers and a locker room have been made available to the nurses. We have also secured a storage room for all medical materials.

There have been the following financial contributions made of 11 200 € by the Community Commune de Saves (our local federation of municipalities) and 350 € per village in the surrounding community.

These funds are being used for the purchase of single use medical devices and assisting the population. Maintaining the opening of our weekly open-air market, so access to fresh, affordable, local produce is available to the citizens.

This is now highly regulated, by Mayoral staff and volunteers, ensuring that citizens do not stand too close and limiting how many people are waiting at each market stall at any one time.

The only stallholders permitted to sell at this time are local (to limit the amount of travel in the larger community and limit the spread of the Covid-19) and no live animals are being sold (as they are sold in an enclosed hall, which is too difficult to monitor at this time).

- between Cittaslow and Cittaslow
Nothing has been instigated at this time.
We are, however, ready to develop and engage in such a collaboration, to enable the sharing of experiences and ideas regarding actions of solidarity.

- between different Cittaslow national networks
Again, nothing has been instigated at this time.
We are, again, ready to develop and engage in such a collaboration, to enable the sharing of experiences and ideas regarding actions of solidarity.

Marradi

Collaborating with APCV Marradi (Voluntary Civil Protection Association) and other volunteers in the area or "Your shopping .. HOME". It is a booking service where you can ask for shopping from our supermarkets which will be delivered by volunteers the day after booking. In a small village like ours, everyone has their own greengrocer, everyone has their own trusted baker. Precisely for this reason we asked our merchants for the possibility of home delivery for those who request it.

Other beautiful initiatives have been carried out by the Municipal Library, which delights us with its online readings and the Campanian Study Center over the weekend, our dear Mirna Gentilini does not stop and introduces all the beautiful verses of our poet Dino Campana, declaiming them in video call.

It is not an activity, but it is a true gesture of solidarity. In an emergency like this there are products that are a must and are fundamental for safety, but which unfortunately are difficult to find like simple hand sanitizing gel. Dr. Giorgini Martino paid the sanitized gel for the municipal offices, municipal police, civil protection, mercy and other collaborating volunteers.
https://www.ilfilo.net/gel-igienizzante-donato-al-comune-di-marradi-il-b...

Another nice initiative was proposed on facebook in the group "Sei di Marradi se". Every self-respecting Marradese has the book Ricetta a memoria by Rosanna Billi. A cooking contest has been opened where a recipe from the book is chosen, the photo of the result obtained is placed and at the end of the quarantine the "best cook / the best cook in quarantine" will be elected.

Beautiful news arrives from APCV Marradi. Many people have registered with the association in order to help out, for example by delivering a newspaper written by our priest Don to all the houses "Il Marradese". Pino and that before the emergency was delivered every week. A small gesture, however, that smells of everyday life which is now more important than ever. We get the news of many citizens and some hunting associations who have made donations by bank transfer.
But the most beautiful activity of this association is "Stìvaca masks". By asking on facebook who knew how to sew and the willingness to create masks, they created a network. Civil protection volunteers collect the material, take it to the home of 12 seamstresses and a tailor who pack it. At that point the volunteers pick them up and take them to the shops where families can pick them up. All free of course.

Massa Marittima
The "home shopping" project has been approved by signing special agreements with the voluntary associations present in the area and making available a telephone number to which the citizen can request the home shopping service, which will have no additional cost for the citizen. The Municipality will reimburse the association for the service provided.

The town of Massa Marittima, where there is a high percentage of the elderly population has responded positively to this availability.

This Administration has been able to note in this particular and sad circumstance, that the availability for help towards the fellow citizens has been welcomed for the most part by very young volunteers, who are working to purchase food and the consequent delivery to home.

Morimondo
In Morimondo there is an RSA that hosts 60 elderly people in the area. Being one of the most fragile categories, the RSA health staff, to protect guests from contagion, decided to isolate themselves together with the guests: they do not return home and stop for all 24 hours inside the structure, thus avoiding any possibility of transmission of the virus. The initiative has lasted for days and to date none of the guests has tested positive.

Monte Castello di Vibio

As Municipal Administration, we immediately made every effort to use every type of tool to make our closeness to the citizens first and foremost, putting in place a communication
simple, clear but direct.
The tools used were the institutional website, constantly updated, the Facebook page and a WhatsApp group that existed before the emergency, called News from the Municipality which has about 200 members. To reach even citizens who have no way of accessing these platforms, such as older people, we are making use of the figure of our Urban Vigilant who, in addition to carrying out his task, is available to give support, provide information and distribute the our press releases and as a board group also through direct phone calls.
In these days we are working to create an online platform where you can connect with citizens, to share thoughts, experiences and emotions in this moment of forced isolation. The tool can be used through different devices (tablet, pc, smartphone ..).

As a municipality belonging to Social Zone 4., it was decided to activate a telephone information desk for listening and psychological support aimed at the entire population. The service is managed by expert professionals and is available from Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 14:30.
 
In this scenario a great help is also given to us by the very active and collaborative Civil Protection Group.

Right from the start our merchants made themselves available with the delivery of groceries at home both to avoid or contain the flows of users and to protect themselves and citizens.

The local associations have also shown great sensitivity to the issue by making free donations addressed in particular to our nearby Pantalla hospital temporarily converted into "Covid-19 Center".

Currently in our Municipality we do not register cases of people positive to covid-19 and for this we feel to thank the citizens who responded responsibly to our appeals, showing seriousness in compliance with the rules and thus ensuring this balance. Their attitude certainly favors the work of us administrators and therefore every day we show them our gratitude and at the same time we recommend that they continue on this path.

Maebashi
(Initiative on the Citizen Level) - Old Japanese-Style Guest House Provides a Space for Children

We temporarily closed elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools as one of the measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. Seeing as there is a lack of public spaces where children can go, an old Japanese-Style house by the name of IRORI on Mt. Akagi’s mountainside has opened its doors to young students. In an effort to create spaces for children, neighborhood citizens are volunteering to teach English conversations classes as well as hold crafting classes.

(Administrative Support Measures for the Less Fortunate) - Temporary Emergency Funds for those whose businesses have closed as well as the unemployed 

The Maebashi Livelihood Independence Consultation Center provides a small sum of money (maximum of 200,000 JPY) to households that are struggling due to a decreased income, or unemployment, as well as to those who are having difficulties with daily life because of the influence of COVID-19.

Heerde
In Heerde there are a lot of people who want to help each other. Citizens of Heerde created a platform, named Coronahelp Heerde, to share initiatives, to offer help or to ask for help. It started on Facebook, but they also have a website, phone number and email now. In two weeks more than 1600 citizens signed up for this platform. Every day, we see that people post an initiative or offer help, like doing groceries for each other. 

Besides that, there are also organisations who take action for others. For example organisations who donate things, like puzzle books for the elderly people. Or a citizen who buys flowers from the local flower growers and donate them to care homes, health care workers and more. We also see that a lot of children and people make drawings, cards and more for people who can use some support. In a nutshell this is the kind of solidarity we see in Heerde.

Economic support of entrepreneurs.

National economic support:
Our municipality support the National government. An example of this is the Temporary Measure Bridging for Work Retention. Under this scheme entrepreneurs will be compensated for the ongoing wage costs, even in the event of a temporary reduction in working hours. In addition, the Self-employed Persons Assistance Decree and the SME Credit Guarantee Scheme may offer entrepreneurs support. The Dutch Banking Association has indicated that it can quickly provide entrepreneurs with (temporary) support to keep companies afloat.

Local economic support:
1. Deferral
In order to mitigate the consequences of the corona virus for entrepreneurs and self-employed workers, payment deferments are possible during the crisis. At the request of entrepreneurs, we suspend the collection of property tax, sewerage charges, ground lease and (where applicable) rental of municipal properties.
2. Financial schemes for the self-employed

The self-employed person (solo entrepreneurs without staff) are eligible for (small) special financial arrangements. The can get money for livelihood during the crisis.
