Building Social Europe: Flagship Conference.- Helsinki, Finland
16/09/2019 @ 11 h 00 min - 18/09/2019 @ 13 h 30 min
The Social Platform, of which Autism Europe is a member, organises the second Flagship Conference, that take place during a very crucial time: European leaders will be preparing the next EU legislature following the European elections results, negotiating, nominating and electing the future European Commission and filling in EU top jobs.
All this will be taking place against the backdrop of growing popular mobilisation for greater social justice and democracy, stopping and reversing an environmental crisis and securing the future for the next generations.
As civil society organisations active in the social sector, we will take a leading role in that debate and we will take our responsibility to make sure that the common good prevails over the interest of a few.
Our Flagship Conference will be an opportunity for our members and actors from a wider European social movement to debate with national and EU level decision-makers on how the European Union can prevent further decay in social justice, democracy and trust in the EU.
In particular we will look at:
1. Participatory democracy: How can civil society become the missing link between people and decision-makers?
2. Social justice: How to make the economy work for people?
This Flagship Conference 2019 is listed as an official side event of Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the Europe Union 2019.
