“Mum and dad belong to us on Sunday” First European Citizens’ initiative for a work-free Sunday in Europe.

É uma campanha  europeia para recolher um milhão de subscritores,  para que o assunto seja discutido no Parlamento Europeu, segundo impõe o Tratado de Lisboa. Mais informações sobre a campanha Aqui

 

We need a work-free Sunday in all of Europe,

• because children need a family day, which is protected as a day off-work

• because this brings Europe forward on it’s way to become the most child-friendly region in the world

• because according to EU legislation, Sunday is the weekly rest day for children and adolescents

• because schools and public institutions never used to work on Sundays and do not intend to do so in the future  – despite of various  religious, cultural and ethnical backgrounds

• because studies prove the positive health effects of the work-free free Sunday

• because every person needs spare time – to relax, to be active in civil society, for hobbies and for religion

• because the work-free Sunday is an essential pillar of the European Social Model and a part of the European cultural heritage.
