European Health Union – not wishful thinking but a reflection of Europeans’ real concerns
Monday 21 February, 14:00 – 15:30

Since health is a member states competence, there is a wide gap between the health systems and expenditures among EU countries. But the majority of Europeans insist that healthcare should be included in the list of most important decisions (Eurobarometer). The time has come to make European health a priority!

Join this event by FEPS and the European Institute of Health and Sustainable Development, in partnership with Euractiv, where participants will address proposals on how to create a European Health Union and establish it in the Treaty on European Union.
PAST EVENT
Child guarantee in Hungary

One out of four children in Europe lives in poverty or is at risk of poverty and social exclusion. That is why socialists and social democrats in the EU proposed the European Child Guarantee.

This hybrid public conference looked at the implementation of the Child Guarantee in Hungary. It is the first of a series of events.

Organised by FEPS, the PES Group in the European Committee of the Regions and the SzociÑlis DemokrÑciÑért Intézet (Institute for Social Democracy).

This Policy Study investigates respondents’ perceptions on how relevant climate change is compared to other policy issues and on particular policy measures and narratives.

It finds that although the public is concerned about climate change and want action, other policy areas such as the economy, health or Brexit are prioritised. Furthermore, environmental concerns vary with age, education, political alignment, and social class.

On job creation, for example, there is still considerable confusion over the impact of climate action on jobs and the terminology used (i.e. green jobs, net zero).

The relationship between Africa and Europe is one that cannot be avoided. Joined by geography, history, politics and economy, the only way to ensure a sustainable relationship is by working as partners in identifying areas of engagement for mutual benefit. Agreeing on improved ways of working together will be the real win. Read more


Cedric Wermuth, Co-Chair of the Swiss Socialist Party, engages in a conversation with Ania Skrzypek, FEPS Director for Research and Training. They talked about why ideological integrity matters so much, how to translate an ambitious equality agenda into concrete economic proposals, and how to move on from the persistent cliff-hanger in EU – Switzerland negotiations.
