“Building Social Europe”


Message by Social Platform President


Dear friends,
I am delighted to present our first official conference mailing and to invite you to the Social Platform’s “Building Social Europe” conference which will take place on 29-30 November in Lisbon and which is organised in cooperation with the government of Portugal.
The purpose of this conference is to mark the one year anniversary since the Proclamation of the EU’s Pillar of Social Rights – an important milestone in shifting the compass of the EU towards being more social and inclusive.
We want to ensure that our conference is a platform not just to debate but also translate the commitments in the European Pillar of Social Rights and in the Sustainable Development Goals into tangible political goals, given upcoming European elections and the institutional transitions in 2019.
We aim to welcome around 80 participants equally representing our membership at European and national level. Besides our membership, we aim to engage EU and national decision makers, social partners, civil society organisations, and academics.
The conference offers two panel debates with participation of high level speakers, three workshops, numerous study visits and meetings with the local projects in Portugal, “Made in Social Europe” exhibition of practices from across our membership, and also a chance to discover the charm and beautify of Lisbon.
I very much hope many of you and other representatives of your organisations will come to Lisbon with us to what is promising to be a lively, stimulating conference!


Jana Hainsworth, President of the Social Platform
