High level Conference on Advancing LGBTI equality in the EU: from 2020 and beyond

Civil Society
Date: Monday, 23 September 2019 13:29 - 18:00

Venue: European Commission Charlemagne Buidling, Room Gaspieri, Brussels

Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics has no place in our society, but for many people in Europe, it is a daily reality. To combat the discrimination against LGBTI people the Commission presented the "List of Actions to advance LGBTI equality" in December 2015. The Council adopted the first ever conclusions on LGBTI equality in June 2016 endorsing the list of actions.

This year the list of actions is coming to its end and it is time to take stock of the achievements and discuss how to advance LGBTI equality in the years to come. To this end the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission will host on 23 September a high-level conference on:

     Advancing LGBTI equality in the EU: from 2020 and beyond

with speakers from Member States, the European Parliament, the European Commission and international NGOs.

The debates and discussions of the conference will inform future policies aiming at advancing LGBTI equality in the EU.
