Workshop on Family friendly regions - towards smart and sustainable growth
Tuesday, 9 October 2012 from 14:00 to 17:00 (CEST)
COFACE is organising this workshop on Family Friendly regions to draw the attention on the role local and regional authorities can have in shaping the living and working environment to respond better to the needs of families.
Starting from very simple solutions, all the way to structural and integrated policies and measures, the cooperation between regions and NGOs can have a very positive effect on how children and families can live, work and play. We will have best practice presentations from cities, regions and NGOs, with specific policy recommendations.
