DAY 36, BUS 2: Dortmund

29 May 2018

Busy day in the heat in Dortmund today. Bus parked on Willy-Brandt-Platz (St. Reinoldi-Kirche). Great arrangements by the colleagues from the DGB Trade Union and a great presence of civil society organisations. At mid-day alarm clocks rang out calling time for delivery on the fight against poverty and for adequate Minimum Income Schemes.

#MatthiasW.Birkwald, Member of the German Parliament and Vice President of their Employment and Social Afairs Committee spent a good part of the day at the bus. He stressed the importance of the #eminbus being a journey for a better Europe and highlighted the extent of the challenge that exists to achieve improvement in the Minimum Income Schemes in Germany.

Quote of the day, “every encounter matters”
