At the last Annual General Meeting, which took place in Oslo from 20-22 June, Eurodiaconia presented its 2016 Annual Report covering the organization’s activities over the last year.
2016 was a great year for Eurodiaconia, as we celebrated our 20th anniversary. The celebration gave us a chance to reflect upon our main advocacy accomplishments, as well as on our vision and mission for the next 20 years.
In 2016, we positively impacted the key EU social policy, and helped our members across Europe to gain expertise and sharing their knowledge. This would not have been possible without the support of all our members, our Supervisory Board, and the whole Eurodiaconia team.
The annual report begins with a message from Chairperson Carla van der Vlist and Secretary General Heather Roy, who look back at a memorable year for Eurodiaconia marked by many successful events, study visits, and publications. The second part provides figures and more in-depth accounts of Eurodiaconia’s finances, covering social policies, and engagement in the political framework of the European Semester.
The report includes a special section on Eurodiaconia’s support for diaconal member organisations and outreach activity, with a specific focus on integrated care systems, research and innovation, and inclusive labour markets.
