Education and Solidarity
Network facilitated by Thierry WEISHAUPT

The Education and Solidarity Network (ESN) joined the Forum of Ethics and Responsibilities (FER)at the beginning of 2013. As a network of actors at the crossroads between education and social protection, ESN is valuable in 3 directions:

1. It links the important community of educators and education professionals to the other professional communities already active in FER
2. Through educators and education professionals, ESN can also make the link with actions in the field of education on an ethics of responsibility for future generations
3. Working to define the importance of an ethics of responsibility with the FER members in the specific field of social protection.

SHARE A VISION…

« Universal access to quality, solidarity-based social protection throughout the world »

… AND HIGHLIGHT THE FOLLOWING THREE FACTS

- Almost 80% of the world’s population do not have any social protection although demand for healthcare and social protection is currently rising rapidly.

- The systems implemented by states are not sufficient to : cover requirements in terms of healthcare and social protection; provide efficient action; provide education and training to enable stakeholders to take responsibility.

- For profit health insurance systems are a factor in exclusion and their influence is increasing to the detriment of solidarity-based solutions.

PUT FORWARD SOLUTIONS

1. Social protection systems based on solidarity, no profits and democracy. 2. Education, an essential part of strategies to extend social protection.
