Civil Society Dialogue: Bringing together workers from Turkey and the EU through a shared culture

 

Brussels, 20 October 2008

 

Ankara will host on 20 and 21 October the opening conference of an important European project steered by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and involving Turkish and European unions. The conference marks the start of this project aimed at promoting better mutual knowledge of workers from the European Union (EU) and Turkey.

 

Civil Society Dialogue: bringing together workers from Turkey and the EU through a shared culture” is the name of the ambitious European project meant to ensure better knowledge and understanding of one another among Turkish and European workers.

The ETUC’s members include four Turkish organisations (Turk-Is, Hak-Is, DISK and KESK) and it has decided to launch this project of major political importance in an increasingly globalised economy. The project will include a range of activities designed to help Turkish and European workers meet and interact with each other.

 

Three Turkish unions (Turk-Is, Hak-Is and DISK) will be involved in the project together with 17 European trade union confederations, all of which are members of the ETUC, and seven European industry-based federations. This broad support underlines the scope and importance of the initiative.

 

The opening conference, which will take place on 20 and 21 October, will launch the project. It will focus to a large extent on mutual cooperation between Turkey and Europe and will bring together Turkish and European trade union leaders, ETUC General Secretary John Monks and Turkey’s Minister for Labour and Social Protection, as well as academics and representatives of civil society.

The Ockress

 

 

And so it came to pass that The Ockress was launched upon the world …

 

The Ockress is a mythological story about a young man named Perlone who is identified by circumstance as ‘the Chosen One’ of a religion that dedicates itself to a number of Gods, Indomnias being the most influential; a religion that is named quite simply as ‘the Faith’.
