Who

In 2014, twenty Belgian civil society organizations joined forces to campaign for “Social Protection For All”. Trade unions, health mutuals and development NGOs, a large coalition in every way.

We can no longer accept that almost ¾ of the world population cannot enjoy sufficient social protection. Even though the right of every woman and man, boy and girl to social protection  has been recognized over and over again in different international treaties and declarations.  Most notably in ILO Convention 102 and Recommendation 202, but also in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the WHO Constitution, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and most recently in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Therefore we set aside ideological and linguistic differences, we agreed on one vision and a joint definition of social protection and started to lobby and gather public support  to convince Belgian and EU politicians that they can and must do more to put the right to social Protection For All into practice. By the end of 2015, a total of 56 Belgian civil society organizations signed up to the campaign manifesto and more than 40.000 people signed our photo petition. The campaign continues in 2016, but now we want to link our national campaign to campaigns and advocacy initiatives around the world. Hence, this Global Action for Social Protection and our aim to draw a World Map of Actions. Because Universal Rights, deserve universal action.
