EUROsociAL+ Programme kick-offs

4, 12 and 18 of July, 2017

Madrid, Paris and Rome

The offices of the Representations of the European Commission in the three countries coordinating EUROsociAL+ on the old continent hosted the kick-off events for the new phase of the Programme while simultaneously presenting the joint challenges of the European Union and Latin America in each of the policy areas to be tackled during this stage: gender, democratic governance and social policies. Thus, in succession, Madrid, Paris and Rome fostered a dialogue on the challenges the Programme will address. The final event included the participation of the Director-General of EuropeAid, Stefano Manservisi, who pointed out that EUROsociAL+ “is not just a project but a way of creating structural linkages between what I believe to be the integrating realities of the world, with their different logics, because, if the motto of Europe is 'United in diversity', it is clear that Europeans and Latin Americans are united by many diversities”.
