Europe's social future: a local and regional debate

October 11, 2018 from 09:30 to 11:00

Just last year, the EU developed 20 principles to advance the social rights of Europeans: the Social Pillar. How does the Social Pillar affect local governments? What is their role? At the same time, the European Semester is recognised as a tool for social change. Shouldn’t local governments be more involved? Join our debate to discuss the local implications of Europe’s social future. With local leaders, experts, trade union representatives, local government associations and high representatives of the EU. This session is organised by CEMR, with its member associations COSLA and SALAR, as well as the sectorial trade union EPSU.
