Event and ceremony organised by the Conference of INGOs to mark the 17th of October

Each year, the Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe marks the 17th of October, the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and organises an event which brings together all those who are dedicated to overcoming poverty all year round and those who live with it on a daily basis.

This year’s event takes place at the Council of Europe on Friday 16 October and will focus on child poverty in Europe.  A ceremony will be held at 12h30 on the forecourt of the Palais de l’Europe in front of the replica of the commemorative stone symbolising the refusal of extreme poverty.

Registration necessary and access only with badge: if you would like to participate, contact Maritchu Rall,  Working Group Extreme Poverty and Human Rights of the Conference of INGOs, by 13 October.
