Since April 2009 the Europe Region Wagggs is a full member of the Platform of European So cial NGOs (Social Platform). The Social Platform is the alliance of representative European federations and networks of non-governmental organisations active in the social sector. Is the largest civil society alliance fighting for social justice and participatory democracy in Europe . Consisting of 40 pan-European networks of NGOs, Social Platform campaigns to ensure that EU policies are developed in partnership with the people they affect, respecting fundamental rights, promoting solidarity and improving lives.
The members of the Social Platform insist that NGOs have a key role to play in promoting an equal society based on the protection and advancement of human rights and the participation of all. NGOs must become legitimate partners in the public debate on the orientation of European society. It is with this in mind that the Social Platform seeks to develop and strengthen a civil dialogue between European NGOs and the institutions of the European Union.
We are new members of the European Women’s Lobby (EWL), the largest alliance of women’s non-governmental organizations in the European Union. The EWL works to advance equality between women and men as well as to ensure the mainstreaming and monitoring of a gender equality perspective in all areas of European Union policy.
We also work on issues of common interest with the WOSM - European Region, representing the interests of our members and aiming to influence and contribute to the issues affecting young people living in Europe today.
