    Opportunities of the new MFF, online meeting 14th December 2020

    Ensa-meeting-online

     

    At international level we would like to provide information and reflect about possible contributions to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with at its heart the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Indeed they represent and urgent call for actions and provide orientations to build strategies, partnerships and exchange practices.

    The Division for Sustainable Development Goals (DSDG) in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) provides substantive support and capacity-building for the SDGs and their related thematic issues. Essential in this present context is the Next multiannual financial framework and recovery package: Council presidency just reached political agreement with the European Parliament about the comprehensive financial package of €1 824.3 billion negotiated by EU leaders in July, which combines the next multiannual financial framework – €1 074.3 billion – and a €750 billion temporary recovery instrument, Next Generation EU. An overview about the new funding possibilities will be provided to participants.

    The disruptive and changing crisis is first a human tragedy, beyond the efforts to tackle the health dimension the social dimension is to be prioritized by the EU notably by implementing the European Pillar of Social Rights this is why we also choose also to follow up and address reflections on this possibility.

    Final Conference A Way Home project, 18/02/2020 – 9am – 5pm , Kind & Gezin Academie, Hallepoortlaan 27 1060 Brussels

    With the European A Way Home project, the regions of Flanders and Carinthia and the cities of Antwerp and Villach improved their after care policies for young people and build coalitions to end and prevent youth homelessness. Leaving out of home care - but also other moments of transition - put young adults too often in vulnerable situations. They face exclusion from care, sustainable housing, work, education,  and have a higher risk to become homeless. It is time for action against this violation of the human’s rights: we need a cross-sectoral connection and engagement of all the stakeholders, both on policy level as on the level of organisations working directly with and for young people.
