A Future for European Leather!

A Future for European Leather!

Objective 2025


logoAFFEL1In January 2015, COTANCE and industriAll-European Trade Union kicked-off a new Social Dialogue project entitled « A Future for European Leather! ». National partners include leather associations and trade unions in France, the UK, Romania, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria, Sweden and Italy.

Through the organisation of 4 European Seminars in 2015 and one Final Conference in early 2016, the Social Partners intend to strengthen their dialogue addressing issues of common concern in the areas of Social Affairs, Trade, Industry and the Environment.

Imagining what the European Leather sector could look like in the year 2025 will inspire their discussions. Looking up to a not too distant future, the project aims to identify challenges and opportunities for Leather made in Europe. Assisted by experts, the sector’s Social Partners will come up with new intelligence that will bring about a deeper understanding of the issues at stake in each of the policy areas.

The Seminars will feed the discussions in the sector’s Social Dialogue Committee where the Social Partners will address joint objectives and recommendations in crucial areas of their industrial strategy.

The 4 Seminars will be hosted each in a different European location starting with Bucharest, Romania, where APPBR will organise the first encounter on the theme “Industry” (24 April). It will be followed by the Seminar on “Social Affairs”, organised by FFTM, France, on 18 June. After the summer break, two more events will be organised; one by APIC, Portugal (October) and the other by UKLF, UK (December).
