The Office of International IDEA to the European Union and the European Seniors’ Union would like to invite you to a Symposium on “Supporting inclusive governance for sustainable democracy to celebrate Ten Years of the European Day of Solidarity between Generations”, which has as its objective the enhancement of solidarity among citizens of all ages in support of inclusive governance for sustainable development.

Ms. Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, will deliver the Keynote address with title, “Inter-generational solidarity as an empowering corner stone of the European Social Model”.

Following the Keynote Address, representatives of European political parties and their Youth and Seniors wings will be given the opportunity to present short statements, highlighting their priorities to promote inter-generational solidarity, in preparation for the 2019 elections for the European Parliament. These statements will be followed by a panel discussion on “Involving generations in Dialogue for Democracy and European inter-generational solidarity”, to take stock of challenges, opportunities, and best practices of inter-generational solidarity.

See Draft Programme.

Based on the exchanges and discussions, the co-hosts will endeavor to develop complementary recommendations that could guide all stakeholders to further facilitate and strengthen inter-generational solidarity.


Registration: RSVP here

The Symposium will be followed by a reception.

We look forward to welcoming you!
