THEME OF THE 2024 EDITION, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE ON 22 & 23 MAY.
„ KANNERAARMUT : (K)EEN THEMA ?"
One child in four is at risk of growing up in poverty in Luxembourg. This means that around 30,000 children face poverty and other deprivations in their daily lives. What is the impact of financial difficulties on all other aspects of children's lives? What is the impact on our society? What can we do to make a lasting improvement to the lives of children growing up in Luxembourg?

Caritas Forum is the continuation in conference format of the Sozialalmanach, which has served for 15 years as an instrument for dialogue with political decision-makers, civil society and business.
Caritas Forum pursues the same objective as the Sozialalmanach, namely to deal with a theme from different angles and thus offer a pool of thoughts, analyses, experiences and examples from which interested parties can draw.
Release of the final report of the first Caritas Forum on the theme "Aarm mécht krank, krank mécht aarm". For Caritas Luxembourg, this first edition of the Caritas Forum highlighted important areas of work for the next government.
