The 2020 Made in Social Europe exhibition aims to give an overview of many organizations and projects in the European Union that are fighting for a fairer and more equitable society for all. By looking at each of the project posters or listening to a short audio clip of project teams and participants, it highlights a real experience of this social Europe.
Three of our member organizations participated in this virtual exhibition, presenting the activities they have developed during Covid 19 to adapt to new challenges, in order to continue providing services to their communities. Located in Spain, France and Romania, the work and actions of these organizations has been amplified thanks to this initiative.
