The 15th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty

Hundreds of helicopters circling above the European Commission:

On the 16th of November, hundreds of helicopters circled above the European Commission, launched by people with direct experience of poverty, who participated in the 15th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty. The (paper) helicopters had messages written on them. The messages (helicopters) were handed over to Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility.  A large choir sang the song Blowin’ in the Wind as the delegations delivered their messages.

This collective action closed the European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty, organised by the European Anti-Poverty Network (EAPN) with support from the European Commission, the Slovakian Presidency of the European Council and the EAPN Fund. A unique opportunity for people with direct experience of poverty from 29 different national delegations to address and exchange with EU decision-makers.
