EUROCITIES will hold its next Social Affairs Forum on 25-26 October in Gothenburg to discuss the role of cities in promoting a more social Europe and in delivering on a European Pillar of Social Rights. Our working groups on employment, homelessness and urban ageing will be meeting shortly before the Social Affairs Forum, on 23-24 October in Gothenburg.

The entire SAF programme is designed to maximize exchange among cities and with invited stakeholders on the principles and rights enshrined in the Pillar. Two high-level panel debates are scheduled, five workshops and five site visits. On the second day of the event, we aim at adopting a EUROCITIES declaration of commitment from cities to deliver on the European Pillar of Social Rights. This will be a great opportunity for cities to voice their expectations for the future of a social Europe and to send a strong message to the EU and member states ahead of the EU Social Summit on 17 November.
