15 March, New Proposals for New Times
On 15 March, EAPN Spain will hold a conference aiming at developing and proposing short-term and medium-term measures tackling the social consequences of the crisis.
Over the past two years, EAPN Spain, with the cooperation and participation of the Social Action Third Sector, as well as several universities and various public authorities, has been developing medium and long-term proposals to fight poverty and social exclusion. As institutional responses so far have led to increase poverty and inequalities, notably in terms of access to good and services, this conference invites all interested stakeholders to take part to the building of an alternative agenda. See programme on EAPN Spain’s website.
