Member of European Parliament MEP Marianne Vind from the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) is organising a debate about the working poor in Europe at Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe will be held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 in Mariager, Northern Denmark. The Festival is a pan-European democracy festival, that aims to strengthen the democratic conversation about the most pressing issues in Europe while also offering an authentic experience of European music, food and art.

Politicians, organisations and companies have the opportunity of organising their own event at Political Festival of Europe. Among those that have taken the initiative is MEP Marianne Vind from Denmark, who is organising a debate about the working poor in Europe.

It is scandalous that a full time job is no longer enough in order for one to pay the rent, put food on the table, and to pay the electricity bills. A growing number of European workers are facing these challenges every day,

There are already numerous debates on the programme surrounding the labour market and inequalities in Europe. Jan Bertelsen, CEO for Political Festival of Europe, is grateful for the proactiveness to hold discussions about these important topics in togetherness.

Our mission at Political Festival of Europe is to open the discussion for everyone and for everyone to take an active part. Poverty, inequality and labour issues affect many in different ways and we are glad that we can provide a platform that can highlight these discussions,”

Political Festival of Europe welcomes the proactiveness of the many MEPs from S&D in helping to shape the agenda of the Festival.

Political Festival of Europe is an annual democracy festival that serves as a platform for democratic dialogue about the most pressing issues on the European agenda. On the side of political events, the Festival is also a place of festivities that celebrates the rich and diverse culture and heritage of Europe.

Medlem af Europa-Parlamentet MEP Marianne Vind fra Gruppen for Det Progressive Forbund af Socialdemokrater i Europa-Parlamentet (S&D) arrangerer en debat om de arbejdende fattige i Europa pÄ Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe – ”Det EuropĂŠiske FolkemĂžde” – lĂžber af stablen for fĂžrste gang den 25.-28. august 2022 i Mariager. Political Festival of Europe er et paneuropĂŠisk folkemĂžde, der har til formĂ„l at styrke den demokratiske samtale om de mest presserende emner i Europa. Samtidigt tilbyder Festivalen en autentisk oplevelse af europĂŠisk musik, mad og kunst.

PĂ„ Political Festival of Europe, har politikere, organisationer og virksomheder mulighed for at arrangere deres eget event. Blandt dem, der har taget initiativet, er MEP Marianne Vind fra Danmark, som arrangerer en debat om de “arbejdende fattige” i Europa.

Det er skandalÞst, at et fuldtidsjob ikke lÊngere er nok til at betale husleje, sikre mad pÄ bordet og sÞrge for, at elregningen kan betales. Men for flere og flere europÊiske lÞnmodtagere er det virkeligheden,

Der er allerede planlagt mange debatter i Festivalprogrammet om arbejdsmarkedet og uligheder i Europe. Jan Bertelsen, CEO ved Political Festival of Europe, er glad for det engagement, der udvises, og at vi kan vĂŠre fĂŠlles om diskussionerne af disse vigtige emner.

Vores mission pÄ Political Festival of Europe er at Äbne diskussionen for alle og at alle kan vÊre en aktiv del af diskussionen. Fattigdom, ulighed og arbejdsmarkedsspÞrgsmÄl pÄvirker mange pÄ forskellige mÄder, og vi er glade for, at vi kan give en platform, der kan fremhÊve dette,

Political Festival of Europe byder initiativerne fra de mange MEPer fra S&D-gruppen velkommen og sÊtter stor pris pÄ deres engagement.

Political Festival of Europe/Det EuropÊiske FolkemÞde er en Ärlig festival, der fejrer demokratiet og er platform for den demokratiske samtale. PÄ Festivalen vil vi diskutere de mest presserende emner pÄ den europÊiske dagsorden. Udover de mange politiske events, vil Festivalen vÊre et sted hvor deltagerne kan opleve musik, kultur, mad og drikke fra hele Europa.

Se programmet her, og fÞlg med i FolkemÞdets udvikling og nyheder pÄ sociale medier og i det mÄnedlige nyhedsbrev.
