In September 2022, the EU Commission presented the European Care Strategy, whose contribution should help improving the situation of caregivers and the quality of long-term care and early childhood education. Against this background, AK EUROPA, together with the Austrian Trade Union Federation (ÖGB), the European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) and the Social Employers, took the opportunity to organise an event to discuss the significance of the Care Strategy and the question, which additional possible solutions and measures are required to improve the situation in the care sector.
