The European Union, acting together in one of the most complex crises in decades, has shown that the European project can be a powerful shield protecting the health and the living conditions of its people. Thanks to our collective efforts, a fundamental shift in the European response towards the COVID 19 crisis was agreed and decisive political actions have put the EU back on its path to recovery.

With real political will, our shared mission of creating a fairer and more equal Union and the commitment towards the Sustainable Development agenda can both be achieved. If we make the right political choices together, the European Union can be the engine of solidarity and wellbeing of the people, as well as the source of future shared prosperity for all.

We, the subscribing organizations, believe that the upcoming Social Summit in Porto on the 7th of May is the opportunity to proclaim this political commitment towards sustainable wellbeing, equality, solidarity and social justice. We believe that this summit can be the turning point for reversing inequalities, making just transitions work for all and ensuring that the recovery and resilience plans of the EU will put the left behind first and the wellbeing and rights of people at the centre.
