The Employment Working Group of EAPN held its annual capacity building seminar on 21 November 2008. In line with EAPN capacity building strategy, these seminars are aimed at strengthening the capacity of our network in relation to our core work areas, through the sharing of full information as well as in depth exchanges among members on national realities.
They aim at creating an equal level of information, awareness and mobilization in the network; their content is accessible for new members of the working groups.
The objectives of this seminar were: to give members the opportunity to engage in common employment-related activities; to create in depth mutual exchanges regarding the national realities faced by the members on the ground; to foster a discussion on EAPN’s general approach on employment, and to agree on what we want to fight for an how in the coming years. The content of the exchanges is used to strengthen EAPN positions related to the Lisbon strategy and employment policies in general.
