EU Campaign against poverty

Belgian Federal Equal Opportunities Department

One in every five European citizens still struggles to buy food. This European campaign against poverty aimed to raise citizen awareness and to support a few poignant actions to diminish this scourge. In 2010, we were appointed to implement the national Belgian campaign that focused on three visible actions: a manifesto signed by Belgian personalities to express outrage at poverty; a public performance during the Belgian national independence day; the distribution of a black and white testimony book to opinion leaders.

Poverty is still a critical issue in Belgium but more and more people are now open to take part in actions that may relieve the problem.
