The Fundamental Rights Forum 2021 will take place in a hybrid form on 11-12 October. All sessions will be live-streamed, with some taking place in Vienna, Strasbourg, Geneva, Warsaw, Ljubljana, Oslo, and online.
The Forum is a unique platform for dialogue about the most pressing human rights challenges that Europe faces today. Bringing together diverse voices, it gives a platform for a diverse range of voices, uniting politics, business, trade unions, civil society, the arts, and sports.
The main goal of the Forum is to build a vision of hope in the “new normal”. To guide this endeavor, the Forum proposes questions on how to address equality and sustainability in the EU growth and development models, and how to ensure social rights and help realise human rights. To address these questions, Equinet as well as its members and partners will be organising different sessions that will focus on ensuring equality and communicating its importance.
