Social inclusion in an inter-regional context
- Plaats in agenda
Kortrijk Social Service Department and the City of Kortrijk have the honour of inviting you to the conference and project fair:
SOCIAL INCLUSION IN AN INTER-REGIONAL CONTEXT
BUILDING BLOCKS FOR THE EUROPE 2020 STRATEGY
Although fighting poverty is first and foremost a national and regional responsibility, the EU can help develop and disseminate effective and innovative methods. EU resources, including the transnational cooperation projects and programmes, an clearly add value in this context, with social inclusion being a vital lever in this respect. Kortrijk Social Service Department and the City of Kortrijk are partners in three 2-seas projects that address social inclusion at different levels. Since the importance of social inclusion as part of the thematic dimension of the growth strategy of EU 2020 cannot be underlined enough, Kortrijk Social Service Department and the City of Kortrijk are organising a conference and project fair as a followup to the European Territorial Cooperation Days. These will be held on 21 September 2012 and will place the following projects in the spotlight: transnational projects that address social inclusion in different sectors and thus help build a social Europe, on the one hand, and an economy that is focused on recovery, on the other.
