EI launches the Education and Solidarity Network

published 1 September 2008 updated 1 September 2008

EI has launched a new Education and Solidarity Network to help strengthen and develop solidarity-based social protection systems by mobilising professionals from the education sector around the world.

This project is being implemented in partnership with the Mutuelle Générale de l’Education Nationale (MGEN), the Association Internationale de la Mutualité (AIM) and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

Professionals in the education sector have a role to play in the development of solidarity-based welfare systems. The support of EI member organisations is essential in the implementation of this network, the aim of which is to promote exchanges of best practices in the area of social protection, the sharing of expertise, help in creating mutual structures, and the dissemination of training modules devoted to solidarity-based mutual support systems.

An international conference will be organised in Paris, France on 14-15 May 2009 for the official launch of the network, and a dedicated website has also been created: www.educationsolidarity.org
