Where: NH Eurobuilding Hotel, Calle Padre Damián 23, Madrid
The session will be devoted to discussing social policies and green answers to the social consequences of the crisis.
The discussion will start from the last building block of the policy paper "The social dimension of the GND" on pensions (link), and expand from there to other social policies.
It will be the occasion for experts to present the state of play in their countries, the strengths and weaknesses of their social security system and social policies and pensions systems, the alternatives proposed by the Greens, and how this could be used at European level.
Then, the debate should focus on the way to develop mechanisms of solidarity across the continent through a common Green vision and common policy proposals (including the recent ideas around Youth Guarantee, etc.). In particular, it will be interesting to learn the different perspectives from the Greens all over Europe.
