Registration NOW open for our Autumn Social Affairs Forum


EUROCITIES will hold its next Social Affairs Forum on 25-26 October in Gothenburg to discuss the role of cities in promoting a more social Europe and in delivering on a European Pillar of Social Rights. Our working groups on employment, homelessness and urban ageing will be meeting shortly before the Social Affairs Forum, on 23-24 October in Gothenburg

The entire programme of the forum is designed to maximise exchange among cities and with invited stakeholders on the principles and rights enshrined in the Pillar. Two high-level panel debates are scheduled, five workshops and five site visits.

On the second day of the event, we aim at adopting a EUROCITIES political statement on social rights for all. This will be a great opportunity for cities to voice their expectations for the future of a social Europe and to send a strong message to the EU and member states ahead of the EU Social Summit on 17 November and of the joint proclamation endorsing the European Pillar of Social Rights at the European summit in December. 

Register here before 13 October to take part in the SAF event:
