On 26 November in Brussels the CoR hosted an award ceremony for the photo competition "My Social City" 2018.
The jury selected among nearly 900 photos from all over Europe the Milanese Stefano Scagliarini’s photo, which shows engagement and care about his close community despite the age gap.
The event organised by PSE group awarded the best photos pitching how EU policies could foster equality of opportunity, protection of social rights and address the employment challenge.
Towns and cities - whether in urban or in rural areas - are being confronted more and more with acute social inequalities.
To restore citizens' trust in the European project European policies could bring an added value fostering equality of opportunity and growth.
The aim of this competition is to encourage amateur and professional photographers to depict social projects and/or social relationships in their towns and cities. The EU has been investing for decades in people and their skills through its cohesion policy and in particular the European Social Fund..
