Upcoming Intergroup event: Putting equality in the Multiannual Financial Framework
Next week the Intergroup will co-host a seminar on the Rights and Citizenship Programme recently proposed by the European Commission. This is the ‘equality chapter’ of the European Union’s 7-year budget, the Multiannual Financial Framework.
In November 2011, the European Commission made a proposal for a ‘Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing for the period 2014 to 2020 the Rights and Citizenship Programme’. This programme will set out how EU funding is spent for equality and non-discrimination in the period 2014-2020.
All five intergroups working on equality (LGBT; Anti-Racism and Discrimination; Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity; Disability; and Youth) will host a two-hour discussion on the Commission’s proposal, including reactions by the Danish Presidency of the Council and a range of non-governmental organisations.
This event is free and open to the public. Should you wish to attend at the European Parliament in Brussels, please register online before Friday 2 March at noon.
