We have the pleasure to invite you to the final conference of Fostering Social Justice, a 3 year Erasmus Plus project, which involved 12 partners from 11 EU countries, to exchange, reflect and foster practices and policies for adult engagement and education.

During this conference, you will hear about:

  • The IFS Fostering Social Justice Project activities and results.
  • The unveiling of our Project White Paper, and Policy recommendations.
  • The Launch of EFS – The Euromed Federation of Settlements and Neighbourhood Centers.

Why should you join? 

We want you there to get to know the IFS better, to develop a better connection with each other, and to have the opportunity to be there from the beginning of the Euromed Federation of Settlements. In the future, we want to develop this European NGO to include in our network as many partners from the Euromed area.

We expect 100 people in person, and 100 people on Zoom. If you cannot make it to Strasbourg, we would still like to connect with you online, as this will make our event and our network stronger.
