The Political Festival of Europe is a yearly democracy festival that aims to gather citizens of Europe over the course of four days to discuss politics and embrace Europe’s rich history and cultural heritage. The Political Festival of Europe takes place in a town called Mariager – also known as the city of roses – an old, idyllic medieval town with crooked houses, cobblestoned streets and timber framed houses. With a modest population of just over 2,500 inhabitants, Mariager town will soon become the place where European democracy will come to life gathering hundreds of thousands of Europeans who want in on the future of Europe. Our mission is to be a place of: Courage – where we dare discuss the future of Europe “Peoplelization” – where we build communities as well as celebrate, showcase, and spread insights to local, regional, and national cultures Inspiration – where we establish debates, dialogues, hearings, and citizen involvement Accessibility – where we create an informal environment for citizens, politicians, and business leaders to meet Anchoring – where we anchor and raise the importance of our democracy for the future of Europe at a local level  In line with our missions, our vision is to “peoplelize” European politics and become a platform, where we strengthen democracy and unity in Europe. We aspire to become the political Olympic Games, where everyone has the possibility of participating in creating the future of Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us all the more reason to create a platform, where we together can discuss European politics and its future. A platform, where people actively can get involved in developing European democracy. The inspiration behind Political Festival of Europe comes from the Nordic tradition of folkemøder –  a concept we want to take to the next level and raise from national settings to a pan-European setting in order to discuss matters that influence everyone in Europe. What is a Folkemøde?  The Danish tradition of Folkemøde [Folk – people; møde – meeting] is a public meeting that dates back to 1839. It is a political event that gathers people with different political views and positions in the interest of democracy. A Folkemøde takes form of informal discussions and speeches across opinions and hierarchy that strengthens active involvement of all participants – every one has a say, every one is heard. After the concept faded away in the 1940s, neighboring Sweden’s own form of folkemøde – Almedalsveckan introduced in 1968 – became the inspiration and groundwork for Denmark to revive the concept on the island of Bornholm in 2011 with their very own annual Folkemøde. It took on popularity fairly fast and has generated thousands of national visitors ever since. So far held at national levels, we aim to expand this concept to the whole of Europe. Here is why. What the purpose of a Folkemøde? The Danish model of Folkemøde is the cornerstone for democracy and pays tribute to the community. The foundation of a Folkemøde lies in dismantling barriers between citizens, politicians and decision-makers in order to bring politics closer to the people and to make society a better place for everybody.  The aim is to lead discussions about how to improve the future of the society and have citizens participate in shaping change. A “folkemøde” aims to: o   Inspire and challenge political views and visions o   Let people meet and listen to politicians they voted for o   Let people have a say and be heard o   Increase trust between citizens and decision-makers and hold politicians accountable o   “Peoplelize”, ;build a community where culture is showcased and celebrated o   Facilitate meaningful debates and anchor them in the political agenda  As cultural heritage is also celebrated in a Folkemøde, entertainment and good food are an integral part of such an event. Hence, at the Political Festival of Europe, you will be able to find arts and crafts, music and gastronomy, alongside the political debates, speeches, workshops, hearings etc.

Going online offers enormous opportunities. That is certainly the case for Belgium. In 2017, 65% of all internet users in Belgium shopped online, but only 23% of SMEs offered their goods or services online. 80% of Belgian internet users were active on social media at the time, but only 22% of companies were present on social media.  There was a lot of room for growth for Belgian companies, which is why Google Digital Atelier was created in 2018. We want to help realize this growth through digital skills training: 27 different workshops and personal coaching sessions - in three languages, free and accessible to everyone. The focus is mainly on digital marketing but you can also find other topics in the curriculum.

The climate neutrality is an ambitious objective that requires a significant commitment from the European Union, but also from the national public and private sectors. In the short and medium period, disruptive implications will affect enterprises, public administrations and workforces across Europe. To undertake the ecological transition does not simply mean “greening” the current system. It means adopting a new economic and social model, and this will have a considerable impact on the future of work and the workforce. Considering workers’ needs is an important element to make the delivery of the European Green Deal (EGD) socially fair. A just transition should not only apply to private-sector workers but also public sector staff. For CESI, as a voice of public sector employees and civil servants from across Europe, there is hence a crucial need for active involvement of workers and trade unions, also from the public sector, in the delivery of the EGD. Especially in the context of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, as well as the digital and green transitions, re-training and re-skilling of workers will be essential to ensure a smooth and fair transition. The action will therefore strengthen and further develop the social dialogue and collective bargaining of CESI members at the national level when it comes to the green transition and its impact on the workforce. www.cesi.org #GreenTransition #PablicSector #EcoTra

The European Network for the Fair Sharing of Working Time’s biannual conference will address the possibilities of a four-day week in Europe, and what real working time reduction could look like. There will be three panel discussions. The first will look at best practice examples across Europe, with representatives sharing lessons learnt and practical strategies towards achieving working time reduction. The second will consider the ambiguities of a four-day week, understanding risks such as compressed hours and threats from objectors. The third panel will look at what actions trade unions are taking in the fight for working time reduction in Europe, with representatives from unions in France, Switzerland and Germany. We hope that the conference will facilitate fruitful discussion and support strategy-building on the road to achieving working time reduction in Europe.

This EU-wide voluntary label promotes products of environmental excellence, based on reliable and scientific information. Since then, it has become the best-known ecolabel by consumers in many EU countries. The number of EU Ecolabel products and licences keeps growing. As of September 2022, there were over 87,000 EU Ecolabel goods and services on the EU market. This represents an encouraging 31% increase since last March. However, in many supermarkets, shops and e-commerce platforms across Europe, the EU Ecolabel (and equivalent national ecolabels) is still outnumbered by unverified commercial green claims. So how can retailers keep widening the EU Ecolabel offer? What’s in it for them?

The climate neutrality is an ambitious objective that requires a significant commitment from the European Union, but also from the national public and private sectors. In the short and medium period, disruptive implications will affect enterprises, public administrations and workforces across Europe. To undertake the ecological transition does not simply mean “greening” the current system. It means adopting a new economic and social model, and this will have a considerable impact on the future of work and the workforce. Considering workers’ needs is an important element to make the delivery of the European Green Deal (EGD) socially fair. A just transition should not only apply to private-sector workers but also public sector staff. For CESI, as a voice of public sector employees and civil servants from across Europe, there is hence a crucial need for active involvement of workers and trade unions, also from the public sector, in the delivery of the EGD. Especially in the context of the Recovery and Resilience Facility, as well as the digital and green transitions, re-training and re-skilling of workers will be essential to ensure a smooth and fair transition. The action will therefore strengthen and further develop the social dialogue and collective bargaining of CESI members at the national level when it comes to the green transition and its impact on the workforce. www.cesi.org #GreenTransition #PablicSector #EcoTra

social Employment forecasts under different scenarios in the EU
Employment forecasts under different scenarios in the EU
24 Oct 2022
ETUI
Having barely recovered from the successive waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, European economies are now facing another serious shock. The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions that have followed have given rise to inflation rates unseen for several decades, driven primarily by higher energy prices. Macroeconomic policy responses have been swift, with governments taking fiscal measures to mitigate the impact on households and firms, and the European Central Bank reversing its hitherto loose monetary policy stance. These changes have been taking place in the midst of unfinished or ongoing reforms in the context that frames national fiscal and monetary policies. Following the suspension of the fiscal rules since 2020, the EU member states are expected to decide on how to reform EU economic governance, whereas the ECB launched its new monetary policy strategy in summer 2021 and is expected to review it by 2024. One of the key question arising from these developments is what the impact will be on employment. The ETUI has commissioned the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies (WIIW), for the second year in a row, to produce short- to medium-term projections of employment dynamics in Europe – by country, sector and labour force group – under different scenarios of the evolution of European economies. This event will feature a presentation of their results, followed by a panel discussion about what the implications are for macroeconomic policymaking in national governments and the European Central Bank.

EAfA Live Discussion - Promoting apprenticeships to SMEs through effective campaigns and instruments
29 Nov 2022
Social Europe
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have been described as the ‘backbone’ of the European economy, employing around two thirds of its work force and representing 99% of its businesses. To enable a shift towards a climate neutral and digital Europe, SMEs play a vital role in adding value in every sector and bringing innovative solutions to challenges like climate change, resource efficiency and technology adaptation. SMEs are also essential to ensure Europe’s competitiveness and prosperity, and to develop industrial ecosystems, economic and technological sovereignty, and resilience to external shocks.Apprenticeships have potential to facilitate the twin transitions and improve competitiveness among SMEs by securing skilled workers. Additionally, they allow the employer to shape a young person’s work habits and to retain, over time, a motivated and qualified employee. However, many SMEs are still reluctant to engage in training apprentices due to an unfavourable business environment, burdensome legislation and internal limitations. For instance, smaller companies, especially micro enterprises, cannot always afford to manage the administrative requirements or make staff available to supervise apprentices. SMEs may also not have the necessary equipment to be able to cover all aspects of the training required for a given occupation. Lack of information, training culture or of a sense of ownership may further prevent an SME to take part in apprenticeships, and regional and national authorities can play a key role in facilitating their participation.

The European Network for the Fair Sharing of Working Time’s biannual conference will address the possibilities of a four-day week in Europe, and what real working time reduction could look like. There will be three panel discussions. The first will look at best practice examples across Europe, with representatives sharing lessons learnt and practical strategies towards achieving working time reduction. The second will consider the ambiguities of a four-day week, understanding risks such as compressed hours and threats from objectors. The third panel will look at what actions trade unions are taking in the fight for working time reduction in Europe, with representatives from unions in France, Switzerland and Germany. We hope that the conference will facilitate fruitful discussion and support strategy-building on the road to achieving working time reduction in Europe.

Quality assurance in early childhood education and care services | Breakfast Byte 15
20 Oct 2022
Families Europe
Early childhood education and care (ECEC) has undergone major dynamics and changes throughout the last years in Germany. There are discrepancies between families’ reported needs for places in early childhood education and care and the actual participation rates of children attending early childhood services. Still, the proportion of children under three years of age that attend publicly subsidised community-based early childhood education and care or family day care is increasing continuously. From the perspective of the family organisations joined under the umbrella of AGF in Germany the following aspects of the quality of ECEC services have to be taken into account: general access to childcare and its opening hours, qualification and training of professionals, professional-child-ratio and maximum group size, development of guidelines for pedagogic work, training and educational partnership as well as long-term quality assurance. This webinar highlights the work of AGF which has been advocating for strong investments in early childhood and closely monitoring the European Child Guarantee developments.

Speakers: Cecilia Foronda Díez – Energy and Poeple Department Director, ECODES Houda Akrikez – Neighbour from Sector 6 and President of the Tabadol Association Gladys Zambrana – Cañada Real neighbour Context: Since October 2020, at least 4,500 people have been living without electricity in Cañada Real (Madrid, Spain). Energy deprivation causes harmful dangers to people’s health and threatens their integrity. On 2 March 2022 FEANTSA and five other organisations presented a collective complaint to denounce that Spain was in violation of the rights that are guaranteed by the Council of Europe in the European Social Charter. On 27 October 2022, the Council of Europe declared the collective complaint against Spain admissible, urging Spain to reinstate the energy supply to the area.

It works with persons with disabilities to find employment that fits their skills and needs, whilst also providing follow-up support and training to ensure successful workplace integration. It also interacts directly with employers to ensure that workplaces and recruitment processes are accessible. OED provides individualised support to persons with disabilities to be able to match them with employment opportunities that fit their skillsets and wishes. This approach allows OED to support sustainable employment for persons with disabilities since they are invested in and supported before and after recruitment. Direct engagement with employers promotes a more diverse and inclusive workforce, providing positive representations of persons with disabilities. This initiative is a partnership between Fundação LIGA (NGO and COFACE Disability member), Câmara Municipal de Lisboa (Lisbon Municipality) and Instituto do Emprego e Formação Profissional (Institute of Employment and Vocational Training).

FEANTSA Webinar: Digital Transition and Homelessness
24 Nov 2022
FEANTSA
FEANTSA Webinar: Digital Transition and Homelessness (23 November 2022) Europe is experiencing a fast and increased digital transition in all areas of life, including social services. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has further enhanced this transition, revealing at the same time inequalities across Europe in that regard. Several strategies at EU level, including the ‘Path to the Digital Decade’ and the ‘Digital Education Action Plan’, aim to regulate the transition while noting that the opportunities brought about by digitalisation are not always available to everyone. It is very true that this transition threatens to further exclude those who are already experiencing vulnerabilities and who often struggle to deal with ICTs, such as people experiencing poverty or social exclusion. At the same time, digital inclusion can bring some opportunities to exit destitution, but more investment in resources and education is needed for that to happen, particularly for the non-formal education providers and social services working with people in vulnerable situations. FEANTSA has been monitoring the latest policies in the area of the digital transition and works to raise awareness on the need to support digital inclusion for all. We underline that there is an existing need to analyse how ICT tools can be used to bridge the digital and social inclusion gap which impacts vulnerable groups and homeless people. Our goal with the webinar on “Digital transition and Homelessness” was to provide evidence and analysis to ensure that the digital transition includes vulnerable and excluded people. Particularly, what impact can EU policies in this area have for CSOs working with people in destitution, and for people themselves? What are their needs and how to better address them? These questions and more were addressed during the webinar from Wednesday 23rd November. Agenda of the webinar: • Welcome & Introduction: Simona Barbu & Sergio Pérez, FEANTSA • Setting the frame: digital needs and support for people in homelessness: David Lowis, researcher at the Berlin University of the Arts • How is digital exclusion experienced from the ground?: Alice De Ronne, Solinum (France); Ellina van der Boon, De Regenboog Groep (Netherlands); Daan Vinck and Daniel Ciancio, Hobo vzw, speaker (Belgium) • Reactions from CSOs & discussion: what policies in tackling digital exclusion of those who are socially excluded?: with the participation of: Elisa Lironi, European Citizen Action Service & coordinator of the digital cluster of the Civil Society CoFoE ; Claire Fernandez, European Digital Rights; Benjamin Ignac, public policy expert in tech policy and human rights • Summary of the discussions & way forward: Simona Barbu & Sergio Pérez, FEANTSA
