The Social Summit will gather EU heads of state or government, the social partners and other key stakeholders for an open discussion on how to promote fair jobs and growth.

The Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth will focus on how to make the most of new opportunities and tackle common challenges for the labour markets and welfare models of today and tomorrow. By building on each country’s perspective and experience, discussions will contribute to shaping a better future for Europeans.

As part of the broader debate on the future of Europe, the Social Summit will provide a unique and timely opportunity for key stakeholders to discuss the social dimension of the EU and its Member States.

While there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach across Europe, there are common challenges and a shared need to act.
