May 15th – Factory Forty. Rue des Anciens Étangs, 40 – 1190 Brussels.
On 15th May, join policymakers, civil society organizations, researchers and EU officers in Brussels to discuss the idea of how solidarity can be sustained in Europe.
Organised together with H2020 funded projects TranSOL and EUENGAGE, this one-day event aims to initiate dialogue on a subject that is of utmost importance. With events such as the financial crisis and migration crisis, European solidarity has undoubtedly been put under enormous pressure. The ability to maintain and grow solidarity is now paramount for European stability. The insights provided in this conference will deal with this issue, providing much-needed research evidence as to how solidarity exists and how it can be strengthened.
Three years’ worth of research by the SOLIDUS team will be presented, with a focus on how transnational, national or regional researchers, policymakers and civil society actors can implement the successful approach of Acts of Solidarity in their initiatives and strategies to overcome social inequality.
