Objectives of the 2021 European meeting

This years’ Meeting of People experiencing poverty will be centered on four important discussion topics:

  1. Housing
  2. Adequate Minimum Income
  3. Good quality health care services
  4. Digitalisation and the access to services will be considered as a cross-cutting issue. How has access to digital technology (access to internet, access to devices, knowledge of using technology) impacted the access to the services mentioned above and others?

170 people experiencing poverty from 28 European countries are preparing around these topics and will meet on 24-25 November to share their knowledge and experience with each other, and with EU decision-makers.

The crisis has severely impacted people experiencing poverty, and the Meeting is a concrete opportunity for PEP to express directly their experiences, concerns and recommendations in the context of a direct dialogue with key policy makers and politicians at EU level. This year therefore, in the context of a future-looking EU, the meeting will be shining a spotlight on the political priorities of PEP for rethinking and building a new future for Europe and its citizens.

This year, we propose an online meeting combining plenary sessions with online interactive workshops and short symbolic/visibility actions at national level. It is open to all representatives of National and EU level Institutions, interested in hearing experiences from the ground and engaging in dialogue with people experiencing poverty.
