For a dignified life free of poverty - Brussels 20.11.14

At the 4th Annual Convention of the European Platform against Poverty and Social Exclusion, a side event will be held discussing a life-cycle approach to achieve a life free from poverty, ensuring adequate income. Five NGO’s; SOLIDAR, European Network of Migrant Women (ENoMW), AGE Platform Europe, European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) and European Women’s Lobby (EWL) will be identifying aspects and drivers of poverty related to how to ensure men and women in different stages of the life cycle can achieve an adequate income through decent jobs, income support and access to social protection.

Building on EAPN’s long standing campaign for an EU Minimum Income Directive including the European Minimum Income Network (EMIN) project and SOLIDAR’s campaign for Decent Work & Decent Life as well as longstanding work for a more social Europe we will further discuss key messages on how to make progress on the commitment to adequate income through the life cycle to policy makers and other stakeholders.
