Maintain, Strengthen, Expand
The event will take place on the 20 March 2018, from 14:30 to 17:30 on the premises of the European Commission, Charlemagne Building, Rue de La Loi 170, Brussels.
The event will bring together civil society working with and for children and families in 25 European countries and key EU level stakeholders to discuss:
- The EU’s added value in supporting the transition from institutional to family and community-based care for children in Europe;
- Challenges and opportunities regarding the use of EU funds for deinstitutionalisation;
- How the EU can ensure better outcomes for children through the next MFF.
The initiated discussions will also reflect insights from the Opening Doors for Europe’s Children new publication “Maintain, Strengthen, Expand: How the EU can support the transition from institutional to family and community-based care in the next MFF” that will be launched during the event.
The meeting will be moderated by Jana Hainsworth, Secretary General of Eurochild and Aaron Greenberg, UNICEF Regional Adviser for Child Protection. The event will be followed by the networking reception.
