The morning Plenary session on Friday 20th November 2015 (9.00-9.45) will be livestreamed here below
In addition to this consultation, it is also envisaged that this year’s meeting will provide a more open space for the delegations of people experiencing poverty to share their stories on how they experience poverty, what they do to combat it and what support they expect from authorities. The aim behind this session is to acknowledge and give validation for the expertise and work that people experiencing poverty contribute to achieve social inclusion. It aims to create a space for mutual exchange and learning and to develop solidarity between people and communities experiencing diverse forms of poverty within Europe.
The European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty is organized by the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) with the support of the European Commission, the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the EAPN Fund.
