COFACE is celebrating its 60th anniversary on May 15th!

May 15

COFACE Families Europe is celebrating its 60th anniversary on May 15th, the International Day of Families, which focuses this year on “families and inclusive societies”. COFACE has been driving the work-life balance agenda for decades, but also many other agendas (gender equality, disability, social policy, contributing to European Treaties, consumer protection and more). For this special occasion we will:

Publish a series of drawings illustrating 30 milestones of our history.

Launch a digital exhibition with real pieces of our history such as original letters from high-profile politicians, telegrams, press releases, cassettes and more. Organise an after-work reception with our members and partners from all over Europe. During the event we will look at the achievements and successes of COFACE and reflect on the future of families in Europe.


Join us for a great after-work reception but also…

– Welcome by Commissioner Marianne Thyssen

– Discover surprising pieces from our past

– Enjoy sustainable food and drinks in the garden

– Network and meet amazing people
