Policy Webinar: Covid-19 and the EU Response: How “SURE” will Europe Be?

Policy Webinar Covid19 and the EU response how SURE will Europe be

During the last couple of months, the worldwide economy has been reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic, putting Europe in front of an unprecedented economic, financial and social shock. Healthcare systems have been overwhelmed, lockdown measures have affected various aspects of our social life, and millions of European citizens fear losing their jobs and facing harder living conditions. This brings major repercussions on our economies, inevitably on the social economy and social enterprises.

In this context, the European Commission is taking action to reduce the negative socio-economic impact from this outbreak and bring the EU back on the track of sustainable growth. During this webinar we will hearwhich measures the Commission took for temporary support. We will deepen our understanding of the ”SURE” programme (”Support to mitigate Unemployment Risks in an Emergency”) proposed by the Commission as a European instrument to ensure that workers receive an income and businesses keep their staff. Finally, we will delve into the challenges faced by practitioners, sharing the best practices in confronting the current Corona-virus crisis.
