17th EU Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty – Let’s make education a way out of poverty! #2018PEP
November 7, 2018 @ 9:00 am - November 8, 2018 @ 2:30 pm
Over a hundred people experiencing poverty from 30 European countries are preparing around this topic and will be in Brussels on 7-8 November to share their knowledge and experience with each other, and with EU decision-makers.
For EAPN, education is a state of being ready for continuous learning, and ready for life. It is a fundamental right that should be accessible to all and not solely seen as a means to access the labour market. Thus, we will be using participative methodologies to discuss issues like:
- Developing a broad and inclusive education policy
- Early-learning, early school-leaving and child poverty
- Lifelong learning beyond labour market needs
- Ensuring participation of students and parents experiencing poverty in education schemes… And much more.
The programme is available on our dedicated Voices of Poverty section of this website.

The 17th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty is organised by the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) with the support of the EU Commission, the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the EAPN Fund.
