The Convention, to be organised on 17-18 October in Cracow, will review the progress made towards the headline target of reducing poverty and social exclusion by at least 20 million by 2020 and the implementation of the European Platform against Poverty. It will also debate suggestions for future actions.
This first Annual Convention, organised by the European Commission with the Polish Presidency, will be the first stage of a transition to the Convention's final format. Its key objective is to give visibility and political weight to the European Platform against Poverty and build support across various policies and institutions, different levels of government and civil society actors.
