DiEMTV presents: Renata Ávila, Jeremy Scahill, Brian Eno, and more!

We are currently living through one of the biggest historical challenges of our lifetimes.

As the EU and the US have sealed off their borders and decided to turn inwards, we must — even if it is only online for now — turn our attention to building the World After Coronavirus.
It is important, as DiEM25 has done from the start, to insist on public and universal health care, mutual aid and global solidarity. We must all do our best to take care of the most vulnerable members of our societies, even if it means self-isolation for the weeks to come.
However, ‘social distancing’ doesn’t, and shouldn’t, mean the end of social cooperation. On the contrary, if coronavirus has shown anything it is the necessity of both micro-local and unprecedented transnational cooperation.
This is why we are starting a special DiEM25 COVID-19 Online Series that will consist of online lectures, public discussions and various other formats where we will invite our members, Coordinating Collective and Advisory Panel members, but also other experts, scientists and activists to share their thoughts on the current global crisis, and possible ways out of it.

As millions of Europeans are confined to quarantine, living under a ‘state of exception’, with restricted mobility and even curfews, we must focus on the broader picture. Aside from offering unprecedented short-term measures and courageous policy proposals, we must also look into the long term effects of COVID-19 on our economies, politics, psychology, and forms of social resistance — as well as on the future of democracy.
Join us next week, and in the weeks to come, online at DiEM25 TV: a radically hopeful and constructive Television programme which will be shaped by its members, journalists and the general audience.
Don’t wait for someone to ask you what you have been doing in 2020, join us by seizing this historic moment!
