The results of the French municipal elections are a call on our elected representatives, civil society and citizens to mobilize in favour of the necessary democratic, ecological and social transformation of our societies. Because our representative democracy has never been so out of breath. Because the health crisis has revealed deep social inequalities and reminded us of the environmental consequences of our lifestyles.
The results of the new municipalities will make the difference in the coming years, because they are committed to a long-term democratic dynamic, which no longer boils down to convening residents once every six years, but to involving them fully and systematically in the governance of their municipality.
