Not Me, We. How inclusive is Europe?

Research shows that Europe faces huge challenges in reducing inequality and social exclusion. 80 million people are at risk of poverty and 14 million young people are not in education, employment or training. Reality is that not everyone is able to participate fully in political, social and economic life across Europe. Reducing inequalities and promoting inclusiveness are crucial challenges for the future of the European project. How can we reverse inequalities? How can we make our cultural and social diversity a uniting rather than dividing force? Let's look at the different aspects of growth and assess Europe when it comes to inclusiveness.
