Eurodiaconia, as partner of the EU Alliance for Investing in Children, calls on the European Commission in our latest joint statement from June 2nd to launch a proposal for a “Europe 2030″ strategy that will combine the promotion of:

  • Equality and wellbeing, poverty reduction and social inclusion,
  • inclusive and sustainable economic recovery, stability and growth,
  • environmental protection by implementing the European Green Deal
  • digital transformation

The Strategy should be aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement. The Strategy’s social dimension should be also aligned with the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR), which will set an ambitious poverty and child poverty reduction target, and which will guide EU Member States’ policy making. In the coming months Eurodiaconia will intensify its work regarding our contribution towards the public consultation of the EPSR action plan.


To read more about the call for a comprehensive, sustainable Europe 2030 Strategy that balances the social, economic and environmental dimensions and that takes into account the most pressing social needs, please have a look at the full statement.
