In 1949, the encounter between Abbé Pierre and Georges, a desperate man who became the first companion, gave birth to the movement and to its work alongside the ones who are most in need.
Today still, encounters of different sorts allow the actors of the Movement –whether they are companions, friends, volunteers, employees, etc- to exchange on various subjects of their interest and to strengthen the bonds that unite them.
In these pages you will find a few words and images of the encounters that are giving life to the European Region these days.
