SAVE THE DATE FOR SOCIAL PLATFORM WEBINAR “TIME TO DELIVER ON SOCIAL EUROPE!”

18 MARCH 2021, 10:00 – 12:00

Europe is grappling with the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s health, living and working conditions. While short-term measures are still crucial to tackle its devastating impact, it is equally important to find sustainable and inclusive solutions to recover from this crisis in the medium term and long-term, with the aim of building a more resilient, socially just and inclusive Europe. Europe can only be more resilient if it becomes a society based on social justice, where dignity, wellbeing, respect for every person and their human rights are at the centre of all decisions and actions.

The European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan is a crucial tool in this context, as it can help to overcome the crisis and achieve the objective of building a socially just Europe.

Social Platform organises this event to exchange views with key Members of the European Parliament and civil society organisations active in the social field about the Action Plan as well as how the European Parliament and civil society organisations can collaborate to support the full and ambitious implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights.

IFSW Europe, as member of Social Platform, endors the event and invite our member organisations to save the date and participate to this important event.
