Online conference - "From Declarations to Action: Time for Social Rights!"
Friday, the 5th of March 2021, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET
As Covid-19 continues to rage across Europe and the world, the pandemic serves as a bitter and stark reminder of the need to invest in our societies and economies to make them more just, resilient and sustainable.
While this need is not new, it is in times of crisis that the European project must prove its validity as a project for the good of all through protecting people, supporting businesses, investing in equality, social progress and economic well-being. Such progress must have people at its centre, and the fulfilment of their needs for care, work, dignity, security and thriving future.
Today, the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) is called upon now more than ever to show in concrete terms its full value. The Action Plan for its implementation must live up to these strong demands by informing recovery and progress with the principles of social justice, investment in the common good, sustainable economy and democracy.
The European Alliance Stand Up for the EPSR invites you to the online conference, involving Europe's institutions and key stakeholders, to explain what the European Pillar of Social Rights is, why Europe and its people need it and how it must become a reality on which to rebuild our future.
Please find the agenda here.
Interpretation will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish.
The link to the zoom online event will be shared upon registration.
This conference is organised in the framework of the Luci Sul Lavoro festival.
