Autism-Europe has actively contributed to voice the needs of autistic people at all stages of the consultation, and welcomes that, for the first time since its launch in 2017, people with disabilities are included in the Social Scoreboard monitoring social progress in Member States.
Achieving a full enjoyment of the rights and principles of the Pillar by EU citizens requires, for the most part, national, regional and local level action. The Commission calls on the Member States, social partners and other relevant actors like regional and local authorities as well as civil society
organisations to put the high social standards reflected in the Pillar at the centre of their investments and reforms powering the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our shared goal is to invest in present and future generations of Europeans, enabling them and Europe as a whole to thrive through social innovation and diversity, despite change and adversity.
The Commission will review the Action Plan in 2025. The review will provide a
basis for further actions at EU level with a view to achieving the 2030 EU targets.
