Caritas Forum



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?


22 May at 6.00 pm: Inaugural conference - SNJ Geesseknaeppchen Room 360°.

Caritas Forum 2024 - Detailed programme (French)

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.
