- Jobs (23-25/9): How to find work, set up a business, or get your qualification recognised in Europe?
- Social rights (30/9-2/10): What social protection rights in the Single Market, in terms of pensions, healthcare, public services…?
- Banks (7-9/10): What more could be done to protect consumer rights, prevent another financial crisis, and make sure that banks invest in the real economy to foster growth?

The debates will give participants the chance to network with other citizens, businesses and interest organisations in Europe. In addition, they will be able to connect with EU leaders and policy-makers. The month will be capped by a closing televised debate on Euronews on the 23/10.
The aim of the Single Market Month is to collect ideas for new EU policies, or suggestions for what the EU could do better. This will allow EU leaders to better understand the situation on the ground and to promote new policy initiatives.
