To celebrate the first anniversary of the European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) Social Platform, the largest network of European rights- and value-based civil society organisations, is to exhibit the work of civil society organisations in implementing the Pillar’s principles.
The exhibition will be held as a part of the Social Platform’s event, co-hosted with the Portuguese government on 29th-30th November 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal. The event will take-stock of what has been achieved in the last year as well as look forward to the future and what more can be done to create a more social Europe.

- Social protection and inclusion (encompassing childcare and support to children; social protection; unemployment benefits; minimum income; old age income and pensions; health care; inclusion of persons with disabilities; long-term care; housing and assistance for the homeless and access to essential services)
