The 11th ‘European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty’ will take place in Egmont Palace, 8, Place du Petit Sablon, Brussels on the 10 and 11 May.
The European meetings of people experiencing poverty were developed as a response to the agreed objective in the EU Lisbon Strategy (subsequently restated in the European Platform against Poverty), to foster the active engagement of people with direct experience of poverty and social exclusion.
The theme for the 11th European Meeting is “Homelessness and Housing Rights in the Context of the Crisis”. This year's meeting will be focused on three key questions:
The meeting will bring together over 150 people with direct experience of poverty and homelessness from 30 European countries to exchange views on these questions with EU and national decision- makers.
Videos of this event will be available soon.
The conference is a closed event, by invitation only.
The 11th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty is an official event of the Danish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, financed by the PROGRESS programme of the European Commission.
