COFACE  organized a seminar in Brussels on the 27th September 2016 on the content and  potentials that the European Pillar of Social Rights may have for the families in Europe. A wide range of speakers participated in the seminar, providing different perspectives from EU to the local level.

Dr. Antonia Torrens president of KMOP and vice-president of COFACE , presented the major problems of  Greece in  the present time of austerity. Also on behalf of all the member organizations of COFACE  Mrs Torrens expressed the hope that the Pillar will be a meaningful process which is going to drive rights- based social policy measures and innovation, not only  at local level, but also for developing family friendly EU policies beyond the social policy field.
