The EAPN seminar on Active Inclusion, Yes to an Active Inclusion based on rights!Promoting EAPN Principles on Active Inclusion, was held in the Salvation Army offices in Paris on 13th June 2008.
This seminar was organised with the support of the European Commission, EAPN France, and the Salvation Army.
The seminar had two purposes: to promote and illustrate EAPN’s vision of Active Inclusion to policy makers and to build capacity within the network regarding Active Inclusion. Participants included members of EAPN, the French EU Presidency, the European Commission and the ETUC.
The workshop drew strongly on the experience of EAPN’s members on the ground in order to identify what is needed to tackle poverty and social exclusion. This experience was used to inform the discussion on how to ensure that Active Inclusion becomes an effective tool for overcoming poverty and social exclusion.
