The Danish Trade Union Confederation Fagbevægelsens Hovedorganisation – to organise a debate at the Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe will be held from 25 to 28 August 2022 Mariager, Northern Denmark. At the Festival, visitors from all over Europe can explore a broad range of debates between European citizens and decisionmakers on some of the most pressing issues. Overarching themes include business, climate, culture, democracy, foreign policy, health and technology.

 

As the largest national trade union body in Denmark, Political Festival of Europe welcomes the participation of the Danish Trade Union Confederation, Fagbevægelsens Hovedorganisation (FH). At the Festival, FH will organise a debate about the  involvement and the role of workers in the green transition and how workers can enable a green transition. 

We are looking forward to participate at the Political Festival of Europe. And especially to discuss the transitions facing the labour market. Danish workers feel a great responsibility both towards the climate and each other. At our debate, we will bring attention to what roles workers and trade unions play in the green transition and how we ensure proper involvement of workers – to the benefit of the climate and the transition,

says Bente Sorgenfrey, Vice Chair for FH. Tweet

The discussion around the labour market is a central one at Political Festival of Europe.

The green transition, the COVID-19 pandemic and now, the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia are among the major factors that affect the labour market and our everyday lives. Innovative solutions and constructive dialogue are fundamental in tackling these challenges and in shaping the future of the labour market ; the Danish trade union movement is at the centre of this discussion,

says Jan Bertelsen, CEO at Political Festival of Europe. Tweet

The Festival welcomes FH’s participation and looks forward to FH’s debate on the labour market as well as the interesting exchanges that will take place during the debate.

Political Festival of Europe is an annual democracy festival that serves as a platform for democratic dialogue about the most pressing issue on the European agenda.

Fagbevægelsens Hovedorganisation arrangerer en debat på Political Festival of Europe

Political Festival of Europe afvikles for første gang den 25.- 28. august 2022 i Mariager. Her vil publikum opleve en lang række af debatter mellem europæiske borgere og beslutningstagere om nogle af de mest presserende spørgsmål. Overordnede temaer omfatter business, demokrati, klima, kultur, udenrigspolitik, sundhed og teknologi.

 

Som en vigtig aktør på det danske arbejdsmarked, byder Political Festival of Europe varmt velkommen til Fagbevægelsens Hovedorganisation (FH). På det Europæiske Folkemøde, arrangerer FH en debat om lønmodtagernes rolle og inddragelse i den grønne omstilling, og hvordan lønmodtagere kan bane vejen mod den grønne omstilling. 

Vi ser frem til at deltage i Political Festival of Europe. Og særligt til at diskutere de store ændringer vi ser på arbejdsmarkedet i disse år. En ny undersøgelse fra FH viser, at danske lønmodtagere føler et stort ansvar både over for klimaet og hinanden. I vores debat vil vi, sætte fokus på den afgørende rolle lønmodtagere og fagbevægelsen spiller i omstillingen, og hvorfor det er afgørende, at lønmodtagere bliver involveret på alle niveauer,

lyder det fra Bente Sorgenfrey, næstformand i FH. Tweet

Diskussionen omkring arbejdsmarkedet fremhæves på Political Festival of Europe.

Den grønne omstilling, pandemien og den nuværende konflikt mellem Ukraine og Rusland er store faktorer, der påvirker arbejdsmarkedet og vores hverdag. I arbejdsmarkedets fremtid, er innovative løsninger og konstruktiv dialog grundlæggende i at tackle disse udfordringer, og dansk fagbevægelse spiller en afgørende rolle i den diskussion

siger Jan Bertelsen, CEO ved Political Festival of Europe. Tweet

Political Festival of Europe ser frem til FH’s debat om arbejdsmarkedet og de interessante samtaler, der vil finde sted under debatten.
