European Parliament: Social Economy Intergroup re-established!

On 11 December 2014 the Conference of Presidents of the European Parliament has formally approved the list of intergroups for the current legislative term (see attachment below): Thanks to the support of S&D, Greens and GUE the Social Economy Intergroup figures among the 28 groups.

Jens Nilsson, MEP and former founder&co-president of REVES, who took the lead in campaigning for the intergroup, said: "It is very important to have this intergroup re-established and to mobilize all actors at EU level. However, we should not forget, that it is at the local level were things finally have to be implemented!"

REVES hopes for a continuation of the fruitful cooperation between social economy at European and local/national level, public authorities, academia and civil society in general in the framework of the initiatives of the intergroup and for any other concrete action, at European and national level,  in favour of the social economy  and (socially) sustainable development.
