Covid19 supercharging poverty – data and experiences from the ground

Hosted by MEPs, and with the EUropean Commission and people experiencing poverty.. The EAPN EU Poverty Watch report with a focus on covid impact on poverty will be launched with this event.

On 29 January we will hold an online conference “Covid19 supercharging poverty” – data and experiences from the ground, hosted by MEPs Cindy Franssen and Marisa Matias. The EU Poverty Watch report will be launched with this event.

The Poverty Watches start from the reality of people experiencing poverty and the perspectives of NGOs who work with them. With poverty predicted to rise to at least levels seen in the 2008 crisis, and the EU Action Plan on the European Pillar of Social Rights and Recovery and Resilience Plans around the corner, the time is now to get poverty elimination right.

The event will hear about realities and recommendations from our members in Belgium, Portugal, Slovenia and in the International Federation of Social Workers, and MEPs and the Commission will respond and discuss ways forward.

Key Speakers

  • Cindy Franssen, MEP/EPP, Co-Chair of Intergroup on poverty
  • Marisa Matias, MEP/GUE, Co-Chair of Intergroup on poverty
  • Katarina Ivanković Knežević, Director for Social Affairs, DG Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion, European Commission
  • Members and people experiencing poverty from EAPN Portugal, Slovenia and Belgium, and the International Federation of Social Workers
