The Mariupol Reborn project has been launched! It will be the largest urban regeneration project in Europe since the Second World War
When Warsaw was still occupied by Nazi troops, the Polish government decided to rebuild the destroyed city. Without waiting for liberation, they began to act. Similarly, today we are talking about what Mariupol will look like after the war. The city has been flattened. This is today's reality. And we must be ready to face this reality tomorrow, when the city is liberated. Being prepared means knowing how to talk to people and knowing how to rebuild a city from scratch. This is why we need a strategy for the reconstruction of Mariupol right now. Normal life in Mariupol can only be restored under the Ukrainian flag, and our state will be able to cope with this task. I am convinced that our allies will also join in the reconstruction of Mariupol
The Mariupol Recovery Plan will be developed by a project office that brings together leading international and Ukrainian experts, international organisations, national foundations, representatives of all levels of government and large Ukrainian businesses. This is a clear plan that will transform Mariupol from a symbol of war and destruction into a showcase of revival for the whole world. After de-occupation, life will return to the city by the sea, and Mariupol will be reborn. And this will be our common victory!
