Dear Friends,


Next week Wednesday 20 June is the UN World Refugee Day which as the S&D Group, we will celebrate with a dance performance on the square in front of the EP premises followed by a conference organised together with our PES Group in the Committee of the Regions.

We would like to invite you to join us on the Simone Veil Esplanade at 13.30 hrs., where you will meet over 100 hundred refugees from all over Europe. We will begin with a message from our VP/HR Federica Mogherini followed by a 10' dance performance by the renown Syrian dancer Ahmad Joudeh and first-hand testimonies of refugees.


Looking forward seeing you on the square!
