17 October was the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. To mark this day, the Social Platform – the platform of European Social NGOs – launched its #OvertheLine campaign, inviting to share messages on the importance of adequate minimum income schemes to tackle poverty in the EU.
AGE is part of the coalition of civil society organisations calling for an EU Directive on Minimum Income to bring everyone #OvertheLine and guarantee a life free from poverty. No matter where you live in the EU, you should have the resources and support you need to live a decent life.
