Inequality doesn´t have to be the future
You are most wellcome to participate in Kepa´s Development Policy Day:

·         Tuesday 11th November 12.30-16.30

·         Finlandia Hall, Veranda 2 (Mannerheimintie 13 E)
One dollar for the poor? Or should the 85 richest people be accountable for the poorest half of the world? Inequality is one of the biggest challenges today and a hindrance for sustainable development. As a rising global trend it is also becoming more visible in Finland. Inequality is not only a matter of economics but also of societal relationships and people´s ability to make a change.
This year the Finnish and international keynote speakers provide us with various angles to inequality. The second half of the day is dedicated to Finnish CSOs: How does inequality challenge us? Kepa´s and member organisations´ general election campaign will be launched after the event. The languages of the event are Finnish and English.
Registration is required by 3rd November: www.kepa.fi/kpp-ilmoittautuminen<http://www.kepa.fi/kpp-ilmoittautuminen>
