What is the European Pillar of Social Rights?

EU map

The European Pillar of Social Rights (EPSR) sets out 20 key principles, agreed upon by EU Member States, to achieve sustainable and inclusive societies.

The EU Action Plan on the EPSR sets out actions at European level to turn the principles in concrete actions. It also proposes headline targets for the EU to reach by 2030.

The EPSR sets the aspiration and implementation priorities for a more social Europe for all. A more social Europe paves the way for a healthier Europe. By addressing the underlying determinants of health, the European Pillar of Social Rights can be considered a European Pillar for Health.

About the EPSR Flashcards

The flashcards are designed to demonstrate how EPSR principles can contribute to achieving health and wellbeing. Each flashcard explores a different principle and sets out what public health authorities across Europe are doing to help build progress.

Each flashcard sets out

  • How the EPSR principle is relevant to public health

  • Concrete goals set out by the EPSR Action Plan

  • The EU tools available to implement the EPSR principle

  • Available EU funding and contact points for further assistance
