2007: European Year of Equal Opportunities for All

9 June 2005 - 3:50pm

2007 has been designated the European Year of Equal Opportunities for All.

The European Commission has designated 2007 'European Year of Equal Opportunities for All'. It says this will form part of a concerted effort to promote equality and non-discrimination in the EU.

The European Year is the centrepiece of a framework strategy designed to ensure that discrimination is effectively tackled, diversity is celebrated and equal opportunities for all are promoted. European employment, social affairs and equal opportunities commissioner, Vladimir Spidla, said:

'Europe must work towards real equality in practice. The European Year of Equal Opportunities for All and the framework strategy will provide a new drive towards ensuring the full application of EU anti-discrimination legislation, which has encountered too many obstacles and delays. Fundamental rights, non-discrimination and equal opportunities will remain key priorities for the European Commission.'

Core themes in 2007 will be rights, representation, recognition and respect. Use the Europa website link below for more information.
