Social cohesion in the 2030 Agenda, diverse perspectives from Latin America and Europe
Following in the footsteps of earlier phases of EUROsociAL, an in-person meeting of Europe and Latin America took place to address social cohesion through dialogue. In this edition, the Sustainable Development Goals and the role of the social agenda in the current Latin American scenario were starting points for debate. San José de Costa Rica, took the baton from Madrid, Antigua (Guatemala), Lima, Brussels and Salvador de Bahía, all cities where EUROsociAL has met to continue the ongoing dialogue among countries, institutions and companies in the two regions.
The president of Costa Rica, Luis Guillermo Solís, and EU Ambassador Pelayo Castro, opened the annual EUROsociAL+ meeting 2017 with more than 250 representatives from 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, and institutions and ten Member States of the EU.
