EAPN Portugal celebrates its thirty years of life, a life full of challenges and obstacles to overcome. We celebrate the Pearl Wedding, because the pearl is an object that takes time to gain solidity, so it is used as a metaphor of firmness and perseverance. This analogy makes perfect sense to explain and translate also the first thirty years of the Network’s life. The Network is today a mature and recognized organization, both at national and European level, for its effort and contribution to the construction of a society that respects human rights, free from poverty or any type of exclusion and based on the values of dignity, justice, equality and solidarity.
” in “30 years. 30 names”
The celebrationstarted in December 2021 with the launch of the book “30 years. 30 names” ( see also a video presentation here: https://youtu.be/rCSqkRDgHX0), with several activities planned to take place throughout 2022 to celebrate these 30 years of EAPN in Portugal.
