Örebro Castle, Sweden
3-5th November 2010
Eurochild’s 7th annual conference is hosted by the Regional Development Council of Örebro.
2010 is the European Year against poverty and social exclusion. Child poverty is on the top of the political agenda. Eurochild – a European network of organisations promoting the rights and welfare of children in Europe – takes the opportunity of its 7th annual conference to look at how all stakeholders can work together to end child poverty. The conference is co-hosted by the Regional Development Council of Örebro, member of Eurochild.Children have the highest stake in an inclusive, prosperous Europe. Poverty and social exclusion are a denial of children’s rights, which can undermine their development and limit the realisation of their full potential. Ending child poverty is the most effective means of achieving long-term social cohesion and equality.
