The European Meeting of People experiencing Poverty takes place this year on 19-20 November in Brussels as a consultation with people experiencing poverty to gather their input on policies to foster social convergence in Europe and to strengthen the participation of people experiencing poverty in policies that affect them. Delegations of people experiencing poverty from 30 countries (EU countries + Norway, Iceland, Serbia and Macedonia/FYROM) in Europe will exchange with EU officials and other policy makers. It is expected that the outcomes of this Year’s meeting will feed into the Annual Convention on Poverty and Social Exclusion that is likely to take place early 2016.
We are looking for volunteers to interpret from English to Bulgarian, Polish, Greek, Serbian, French, German, Czech, Hungarian, Spanish and Latvian, and also from these languages into English. It would also be great to have some volunteers who can help with Hungarian and Latvian to and from French.
