Mariupol should become a flagship of global reconstruction of Ukraine: the future of the Ukrainian city was discussed at the ALDA Forum

Mariupol Reborn was presented at a meeting of the ALDA General Assembly (European Association of Local Democracy, ed.), which took place in Barcelona from May 13 to May 15.

The accents of this year's meeting were the globalization of the influence of local democracy, community involvement and migration. Mayor Vadym Boichenko told about the experience of Mariupol. 

Mariupol's people set us several tasks: to develop a plan for the restoration of our city after de -occupation and to restore justice for the entire community. Yes, the city that has become the greatest military crime of Russia should become the flagship of building and restoring justice. Democracy has its price. And this price is the choice: either to fight for your values or to give up. Ukraine and Mariupol made their choice. So we fight

According to him, even in the conditions of temporary occupation it is necessary to continue to defend the principles and values of the city. Local government bodies play an important role in this.

In addition, the Mariupol Reborn project team believes that the constant focus on the post-war revival of one of the advanced to the full-scale war and the most affected cities is necessary both within Ukraine and abroad. This helps to actualize the desire of the Mariupol community and to form a pool of interested donors and experts for future recovery work.          

Mariupol Reborn is an example of how the revival of one city can affect Ukraine's global rebuilding. It is not just to restore damaged infrastructure and architecture, but to create a space where people would like to return. It is both the restructuring of the economy and security, social needs are all aspects of life. We offer universal algorithms that do not require public funding because they are based on investing attracting. In this aspect, we have a successful case of cooperation with Rinat Akhmetov's SCM Group and finding international donors
