EUROsociAL+ News - June 2019


The recent communication from the European Commission and the European External Action Service on European Union-Latin America and the Caribbean relations, highlighting the role of EUROsociAL+ as an essential instrument for reducing inequality; the current scenario on the new role of international cooperation with countries in transition; and upcoming global (European Development Days 2019 in Brussels) and bi-regional events (Second Meeting of the EUROsociAL+ Programme in Cartagena de Indias), are giving the Programme decisive momentum to reposition the social agenda and promote a horizontal cooperation model based on exchange, dialogue, trust and reciprocity.

The Second Meeting of the EUROsociAL+ Programme is intended to be a time for sharing and exploring the concept of trust as an essential component of social cohesion and the new cooperation instruments. The meeting will combine two exchange formats: a collective space in plenary session to talk about the current challenges to trust in both regions and their impact on social cohesion; and another, consisting of parallel groups, where eight workshops will address areas of the work done by the programme from an intersectoral dynamic that affect social cohesion, with the focus on trust.
