 Amphi A  Introductory, This activity aims at building)), strengthening or organising networks

Measures of financialisation and commercialisation of the health and social sector plague all the countries of Europe, and are driven by the same mechanisms, with the rhythm varying from state to state. The riposte for the defence and promotion of a non-market system of solidarity must happen at the European level.
The European network against the commercialisation and privatisation of health and welfare has as ambition to coordinate this fight. Beyond that is the question of a combination of social determinants (education, housing, water, work...)

The seminar aims to shed light on:

- Workshop 1: the mechanisms of privatisation and of commodification of health and social sectors at work in Europe and their consequences for populations.

- Workshop 2: inventory of existing activist networks in Europe and beyond

- Workshop 3: successful activism, current and future combats, coordination and perspectives
