The open letter of CEC to the European Social Summit on 17 November in Gothenburg is entitled with Social Pillar or Social Pillow? It was drafted by Representatives of civil society, trade unions and church-related organisations from 8 EU member states at a meeting at the Protestant Academy of  Baden (Germany). They call on the participants of the summit to especially stand up for fighting inequality and unemployment as well as more investments in education. They make it clear that in their “holistic understanding, education is not only an instrument of training for the labour market, but also includes social, cultural and political dimensions.” The complete open letter can be accessed here.
