The European Parliament elections will be taking place throughout Europe from 4-7 June 2009.
Pre-elections, the SOLIDAR Secretariat is providing a resource centre for its member organisations on the SOLIDAR Members Area in order to support national advocacy actions towards candidate MEPs.
Post-elections, the SOLIDAR campaigns ‘Together for Social Europe’ and ‘Decent Work‘ will be targeting newly-elected MEPs and confronting them with the social realities of socially and economically disadvantaged people in Europe and the rest of the world.
Key moments of the campaign are:
- 29 April 2009: A conference in the European Parliament with social workers from SOLIDAR member organisations presenting their experiences of working with socially and economically disadvantaged people and vulnerable groups.
- April-June 2009: National seminars organised by SOLIDAR members in various European countries. More about the activities in the country
- Autumn 2009: 5 Expert Round Tables organised with newly-elected MEPs to confront them with the social realities of people living in Europe and around the world and ask what they plan to do about it.
