The events of recent months have shown us all the value of unity, kindness and cooperation.

And goes on saying:

Big musical projects, such as the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, have great value, because they bring optimism and hope. The slogan of this year’s Junior Eurovision, ‘Move the World’, underlines the necessity of taking positive actions for the common good. One such action is the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. I am glad that TVP, after the success of last year’s edition, was chosen again as the host and organizer of this incredible musical event.

Regarding the obstavle the covid-19 pandemic can bring on the road to the contest, with a changing and challenging environment, the EBU will, therefore, work with TVP and its other Members to ensure the continuity of the event in a number of different scenarios.
