European conference "Families on the move"
Thu, 11 May 2017, 19:00 – Fri, 12 May 2017, 16:30 CEST
COFACE Families-Europe and two of its Belgian members Gezinsbond and La Ligue des Familles are jointly organising the conference 'Families on the move' that will take place in Brussels at the centre of Europe at the Higher Institute for Family Studies on Friday 12th May 2017 from 9.00 to 16.30, making key links between local and EU dynamics, with the presence of a mix of stakeholders from different horizons.
Our workshop themes will focus on different “moves” (economic, geographic, digital, and societal), with a specific focus on the following key areas: portability of social benefits, family reunification, portability of data, and the societal shift of families and worklife balance challenges.
For each 'move', we will have a workshop, divided into a morning session on the state of play and challenges, and an afternoon session on the next steps and actions for the future.
The working language will be in English only (no interpretation will be provided).
Please also note that a cocktail and a dinner will be organised the evening before the conference itself on the 11th of May, from 19.00 to 22.00, at La Brasserie Horta, the restaurant attached to the famous Belgian Comic Book Center. Fans of Art Nouveau and comic strip enthusiasts will be able to really enjoy its visual pleasures as well as their culinary delights in a very 'Belgitude' way. For those who would be interested in a visit of this amazing center, we can also organize the booking of tickets for you before the cocktail.
Please be advised that the conference will be limited (maximum 100 seats).
Travel will be arranged and covered by the participants.
